Take the time to share the film let people know the truth.
Another highlight of this movie was it's theme song "The courage to Believe" simply stunning and bold - it truly touched my heart! I'd also like to take this opportunity to express my warm regards to the director and to the producer of this movie simply for supporting Jennifer and bringing her story to the world - excellent job and well done guys. The world absolutely needs more people like you to tell tale of the helpless & wounded that often go untold & unspoken!
We are all with you in this till the end. And I'm sure one day soon you will be able to go back to China and be free to belief and practice whatever you wish :)
My heart-felt condolence for those who lost their lives to CCP's persecution and Organ Harvesting:(
I found it difficult to watch the part where the man came back to China to try to get the message of the situation out to the population, risking his safety (and life, to be fair). It's sad that people have to resort to such means, since there's no way to appeal through the system, to make your opinion heard if it doesn't correlate to guidelines, and to raise any issues that the system doesn't want to know about.
It's very different to how we know life in the west. So would recommend this docu to anyone who is interested in the current China to watch it and be informed and make their own opinion of the situation. Because not everything we hear through mainstream about China are the only thing happening there.
It is now an Oscar contender for documentary, score and song, which I applaud. With its exposition of deeply questionable ethics of a trusted section of society, the movie should influence and affect many an audience worldwide.
The fates of a woman living in Beijing and a man living in New York become inextricably linked because of a common conviction. A mother and model citizen, Jennifer Zeng was imprisoned for her faith. As she endures physical and mental torture, she has to decide: does she stand her ground and languish in jail, or does she recant her belief so she can tell her story to the world? A world away, Charles Lee, a Chinese American businessman, wanted to do his part to stop the persecution in China. However, as soon as he stepped off an airplane in Guangzhou, he was whisked away by the Chinese police and sentenced to three years of re-education in a prison camp.

I Don't wish to say anything about the film here (Free China- The Courage to Believe) But what I do wish to do is share this interview with a Chinese 'paid troll' - one of many which the Chinese Communist Party supposedly pays to: comment negatively and sway public opinion on issues it considers 'sensitive'

Don't let Anyone tell You how to Think.
It's a documentary but parts of it have the excitement of a thriller, an early John Le Carre quality--about an individual trying to keep integrity in an evil environment.
In honor of the upcoming June 4 Tiananmen Square massacre anniversary, I recommend giving yourself a chance to know this story.
JK Rowling wrote about founding her charity, Lumos, that she saw a picture in the newspaper of a child in a cage. She almost did not read it in case it was depressing. Then an inner voice said to her--read it and do something about it. Relevant!
