|Filmmaker to document negative outlook on Chinese goods in Iran||
The documentary entitled “Made in China: A True Story” will be based on field research and interviews with experts and a number of major Chinese businessmen, Mohammad-Ali Hossein-Nejad told the Persian service of the Fars News Agency.
“There is a negative attitude toward Chinese goods in Iran and it is also reflected by the national television,” he stated.
Hossein-Nejad said that the documentary also plans to review public opinion about Chinese exports in some other countries.
Shooting is scheduled to begin late September, and over 30 percent of the documentary will be shot in China and several other countries.
The documentary will be produced in Persian and English versions.
Karampur’s credits include “Who Killed Amir?”, “Somewhere Else” and “Teheran, Tehran”.
Over the past decade, Iran has been turned into a major market for shoddy Chinese goods, which are offered at low prices. Iranian people with low levels of income have welcomed the goods and as a result, many Iranian industrial and manufacturing companies have closed.
Today, “made in China” means “shoddy goods” for many Iranians.
