Wang Jiuliang

From 2008 to 2011 photographer and filmmaker Wang Jiuliang documented over 460 landfills around Beijing, culminating in the award-winning film Beijing Besieged by Waste (2011) and prompting the Beijing municipal government to invest 10 billion RMB to regulate the waste disposal industry. Wang’s new work continues to looks at waste in China, but this time his upcoming film, Plastic China, uncovers the human and environmental costs of imported plastic waste in China.
