A necessary documentary
It was really in need that someone had the courage to speak up and show the reality outside of the fancy touristy areas. If the Chinese government does not smash him, this director has a really bright future. You will be able to observe anything from illegal dumps, to people living among trash, or animals eating plastic. One can assume where those cows are going to end... probably at some restaurant's table downtown, at a barbecue, or inside some vacuum packed snack. This is not a problem in China only, though. It's a widespread sickness of cities worldwide, from Africa to America and even the old heart of Europe. PRC just experiences one of the toughest, since their cities host the most number of souls in the planet... and not precisely the most organized, open or civilized. Watch this documentary and help to spread the word.
