Interesting stuff on Newsnight tonight, I hope they archive this one:
Our Science Editor, Susan Watts, has been speaking to the banned Chinese film director, Li Yang. His new film, “Blind Shaft”, was shot in the small private coal mines of northern China.
Unofficial figures suggest up to 10,000 deaths a year occur in China’s mines.
In a wide-ranging interview, Li Yang tells Susan about his latest film on people-trafficking between China and the UK and how devalued lives, at the heart of the story of China’s coal mines, have become a theme of his work.
