elect_video_camera 12:30 PM FILM: Transcending Fear
A Documentary by NTDTV
Remind Me about this Event  
   
Guest Speaker: George Wei
This documentary talks about China’s top attorney Gao Zhisheng’s story. 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, in the eyes of the Communist Party, he goes too far. After speaking out against taboo human rights abuses, Gao is abducted and tortured. Secret police hold his wife and children hostage. Gao is forced to choose between his lifelong quest for justice and his love for his family. 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.
