Yiwu International Trade City in Yiwu, Zhejiang, China is the largest wholesale consumer market in the world. This documentary looks at the people who look after its countless booths.
Chinese-American director Jessica Kingdon takes us on a tour of China’s Yiwu Market—the largest wholesale consumer goods mall in the world.

Talking about her transfixing and thought-provoking work, Kingdon explains: “The markets have their own routines and rhythms, where the space—sprawling across five miles—operates according to the fluctuating demands of the global economy.”
