Abstract Despite the fact that U.S. laws strictly forbid trade in prison labor products, this program shows how China tricks the West into buying hundreds of millions of dollars of goods produced in its system of 2,000 labor camps, the Laogai. Harry Wu, a Chinese dissident who was released after 19 years in the Laogai, returns to China with a video camera; through prison interviews and undercover footage of factories in the camps, Wu discloses the imprisonment, brainwashing, and torture that half a million Chinese political prisoners still suffer by a government intent on "reforming their thoughts."
