Winner of twenty-one national and international awards, Mardi Gras: Made in China
follows the path of Mardi Gras beads from the streets of New Orleans
during Carnival – where revelers party and exchange beads for nudity –
to the disciplined factories in Fuzhou, China – where teenage girls live
and sew beads together all day and night. Blending curiosity with
comedy, Mardi Gras: Made in China is the only film to explore how the toxic products directly affect the people who both make and consume them.
