Plot Summary: A masterful new film from Jia Zhang-ke, director of "Still Life," "24 City" chronicles the dramatic and thunderous fall of a State-owned munitions factory and its conversion into a luxury high-rise apartment complex. Artfully composed, rich in offbeat details, and punctuated with pop songs, "24 City" weaves together the stories of three generations of factory workers (some real, some played by actors) into a fascinating oral history of post-revolutionary China and bracing meditation on the massive physical and psychological changes transforming the country.
