The documentary, by filmmaker Micha Peled, premiered on Independent Lens in 2007 and won its audience award that year. China Blue examines the brutal working conditions at a blue jeans factory in China.

To kick off the online premiere, PBS NewsHour’s Hari Sreenivasan will moderate a live chat on Friday at 11AM PT / 2PM ET with Peled and others, focusing the discussion on globalization and poor working conditions in China.

You can participate in the chat right here on the POV blog.
