When a SOS note, smuggled out of a Chinese labour camp, is discovered and goes viral, an astonishing sequence of events unfold. The now freed prisoner, a Chinese engineer who had been jailed for his spiritual beliefs, decides to make a film about the harsh reality of being a human rights defender in China, risking his life in the process. This is a gripping human rights film with an urgent message; filmed partly by Chinese dissidents, who smuggled the footage out of China.
This screening is hosted by BSE Young Programmers.
