Ascension (Chinese: 登楼叹)
Jessica Kingdon — USA — 2021 — 97'
Ascension is a portrait of China’s industrial supply chain that reveals the country’s growing class divide. The film is structured in three parts, ascending through the levels of the capitalist social structure: workers running factory production, the middle class selling to aspirational consumers, and the elites enjoying a new level of hedonism.
