Published Paris : Ampersand, 2005


Description 1 online resource (28 min.)
Series China: new (dis)orders
Current affairs in video
Summary It is a new form of dictatorship led by advertising, market forces and mass consumption. Since China has a single child policy, that child has only one option: to be perfect. Daughters, in particular, carry the weight of parental expectations, hopes and wishes. At all costs, they have to be tall, fair complexioned and smiling. In this exceptional documentary, see how Chinese women lengthen their legs with gruesome surgery. See also how they westernize their eyes and breasts. BEAUTY IN CHINA is a hard hitting illustration of the dark side of China's dive into modernity
