The Int’l Documentary Festival of Amsterdam (IDFA) jury president had this to say about CHINA BLUE:

 A crucially important documentary for our times. Told from the inside, this is an account of modern slavery in a global market. It shames us all. Blue jeans are the iconic style item of the departed century and perhaps the next one too. The Jury wish to applaud the integrity, resourcefulness and courage of the film makers who took us on a shocking journey – one that confronts us with the real human costs of our easy choices and our bargain hunting.
