Directed by Taiwanese filmmaker Ho Chao-ti, this film traces, over a period of two years, the footsteps of a pair of name-brand high-heeled shoes, from the border of China and Russia to the streets of Manhattan, from an impoverished farm town and the gruesome spectacle of slaughtered cows and skinned hides, to the fashionable, prosperous metropolis.
This film examines the lives of individual people who work in the shadow of consumerism. (55 minutes)
See the trailer.
This screening will precede a lecture by the director on March 14.
