COMMODITY CITY from Jessica Kingdon on Vimeo.

Commodity City is an observational documentary exploring the daily lives of vendors who work in the largest wholesale consumer market in the world: the Yiwu Markets in China. The film explores moments of tension between commerce and individuality, between the goods for sale and the humans who sell them.

Incredible piece. A wormhole on another world. Zoom it out, full screen. Lots of great detail in these almost-still images.
