"A dark, quiet, damning documentary looking at China's determined expansion into Africa (here Zambia) through the lives of a Chinese farmer, a road builder, and the Zambian trade minister. When in 1999 China announced its "go global" policy it had Africa very much in mind, and specifically the raw materials that go into the construction of our electrical equipment. A creeping, alarming account of exploitation as well as a study into the psychology of colonialism." (Financial Times)
After the film, we will have a panel discussion on the implications of Chinese state-owned investments in Canada with award-winning journalist Terry Glavin, Human Rights campaigner David Kilgour, Terrorism and Security Specialist David Harris, University of Ottawa Professor Scott Simon, and Jason Loftus, deputy publisher for The Epoch Times Canada.
Please join us for an evening of film, discussion, and food & drink!
