While China's rise, and its immense challenges, commands world attention, less light has been shed upon the colossal problem of waste generated by a burgeoning population, expanding industry, and rapacious urban growth. Photographer Wang Jiuliang turns his lens upon the grim spectacle of garbage, excrement, refuse, and wreckage heaped upon the landscape that surrounds China's mega-metropolis, Beijing. Eking out a hazardous living within are the scavengers, mostly rural migrants, who struggle to maintain familial and cultural structures amid the bleakest of occupations. Wang shows the desecration of once-vital farmlands and rivers in the shadow of China's gleaming cities and planes and super-trains; the unholy cycle of construction's consumption and waste, and poignant images of the daily lives of scavengers who toil at their own peril.

在中國人民的心中,北京是一座人均年所得 GDP 超過30萬的現代城市。這座古老的城市也蘊含了大中華的歷史與文化,以及乾淨的街道與公園的美景。但它真的如表面上一樣的乾淨無暇嗎?或者說,兩千萬的北京市民們,每日所生產的廢棄物都到哪裡去了呢?這是我們想知道的。《塑料王國》導演王久良的處女之作,透過鏡頭探討北京周邊衛星城市如何消化大量的中國廢棄物,以及那被垃圾所包圍的「北京」。
