Abstract:

In its rush to riches, China may be devouring its ability to feed its own people. This program addresses the country's disturbing lack of food security, examining the roles played by drought, pollution, industrial development, and overwhelming demand. Viewers will accompany two lawyers as they champion disadvantaged farmers whose lands and water sources have been ruined by factory waste --a problem widespread in rural China. The film also spotlights Pan Yue, China's outspoken Vice Minister of the Environment, and links several factors --including real estate deals, land seizures, and climate change --to the sad reality that one in eight Chinese often goes to bed hungry.
