        Farm and City

        Taxes and fines levied by the local government have forced China’s farmers from the countryside into the city. Although in urban areas they are considered second class citizens due to laws that prevent them from legally establishing urban residence, the countryside has proven too difficult to sustain a livable income. In this video from Wide Angle, visit the farm of a peasant in rural China and the city where millions have escaped to in search of employment.
