Blind Shaft

Directed by Li Yang

Banned in China where it was shot literally underground, BLIND SHAFT is a powerful, realistic exposé of the dangerous conditions found in China’s many illegal private mines where the lives of the thousands of desperate migrant workers are indeed cheap. Director Li Yang is starting work on a film about the deaths of the Chinese cockle pickers on Morecambe sands.
