*DOCUMENTARY FILM ON CHINA: "The Concrete Revolution"*

This film gives a realistic portrayal of the lives of Chinese construction
workers in Beijing during the building boom in the runup to the
Chinese-hosted 2008 Olympics.  The filmmaker focuses on personal interviews
of Chinese migrant laborers and working people.  After the film showing,
discussion will review the subsequent Chinese national labor laws, which
are currently being refined and implemented.  There will also be a brief
review of current topics such as the sensational Gu Kailai trial and the
preparations for the all-important 18th Party Congress late this year..

*Hosted by: China Study Group at the Center for Marxist Education, 550
