Dust in the Lung: A Documentary Film

Author : Al Jazeera | 2016 |
Published By: Al Jazeera

An estimated six million people in China suffer from pneumoconiosis, also known as black lung disease. Almost all of those suffering from the disease are migrant workers who live at the bottom of society. China is developing quickly and the country is fast becoming an economic power in the East. In the process, migrant workers have become China's indispensable labour force but, because of the lack of information, they have no idea how to protect themselves. This film explores the lives of those suffering from pneumoconiosis in China, and documents the efforts of a journalist to raise awareness about their suffering.
