24 City

24 City chronicles the dramatic closing of a Chinese state‐owned munitions factory and its conversion into luxury high‐rise apartments. Given the name Factory 420 as an internal military security code, the Chengdu Engine Group was founded in 1958 to produce aviation engines and saw years of prosperous activity. Now abandoned, the factory awaits its destiny. Sold for millions to real‐estate developers, it is being transformed into an emblem of market economy: an apartment complex called 24 City. (35mm)
