Free Human Rights Films : Free awarding-winning films about human rights in China Other events...
At 1:00pm "Transcending Fear, the Story of Gao Zhisheng" will be screened.

Born in a cave with only stars to tell time, Gao Zhisheng overcomes incredible odds to become one of China’s top attorneys. The people call him “the Conscience of China.” But then, in the eyes of the Communist Party, his pursuit of justice goes too far....

A story of cruelty, courage and compassion, this film is a must-see for anyone wishing to understand the tensions bubbling below the surface of today’s China—or to meet one of the most noble freedom fighters of our time.

At 2:30pm, another film "Fee China, the Courage to Believe" is screened.

This multi-awarding winning film explores how and why persecution happens to tens of millions of peaceful Falun Gong practitioners in China and their plight . A must-see thriller which also provides insights into the functioning of China's labour camp system. In the end, the film provides hope for humanity and a new China.
