Library to screen documentary

FREEPORT — The 32nd Camden Conference is focusing on China this year: its complex social, economic, environmental and political affairs, as well as its relations with Asian neighbors, the U.S. and the international community at large. There will be a screening of “The China Hustle” at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30, at Freeport Community Library.

“The China Hustle” is a 2018 documentary detailing the disturbing and ongoing multi-billion dollar heist playing out on Wall Street. Ignorance and greed rule the day in this film, wherein small Chinese companies are hyped up and sold by American investment banks to U.S.-based investors. Hundreds of billions of dollars have been lost so far, and in an increasingly deregulated financial world, this problem isn’t going anywhere. Forbes deemed “The China Hustle” as “the most important film of 2018.” This film is one hour, 22 minutes long, and is rated R.


This event is free and open to the public. For questions or directions to the library, visit or call 207-865-3307. For more information on the conference, visit
