Movie Info

This examination of cultural and economic globalization follows Mardi Gras beads made in China by teenage girls and young women -- who work in a factory 12 to 14 hours a day, six days a week for around 10 cents an hour -- to the adults who exchange them in the 24-hour New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration.

Critic Reviews for Mardi Gras: Made in China

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (6)

  • Mardi Gras: Made in China is a thought-provoking, canny piece of filmmaking that puts flesh, blood and garish multicolored baubles on the skeleton of globalization.

    August 10, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • At minimum, this two-dimensional documentary does a decent job of displaying cavalier consumption alongside globalization and exploitative manufacturing.

    April 28, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Feels like a sermon on vegetarianism being delivered to occupants of a Sudanese refugee camp.

  • Would play better if it were more focused and less repetitive.

    March 24, 2006 | Rating: 2/4
  • When [Redmon] runs out of things to say, his film lands in an anticlimactic puddle, just like the shiny trinkets forgotten after the party ends.

    March 24, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A startling look at both the effects of globalization and at a dramatic cultural divide.

    March 23, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5
