📣 We have released extra tickets for our screening One Child Nation screening tomorrow, Thurs Nov 14, 6.55pm at the Cinepolis Chelsea.

China’s one-child policy ended in 2015, but it has had a haunting impact on several generations of Chinese families. After the birth of her own child, filmmaker Nanfu Wang (Hooligan Sparrow) returns to her village, where she begins an investigation into the controversial population control program. Posing difficult questions to family members, local party officials, journalists and activists, she and co-director Jialing Zhang uncover troubling secrets that have long been kept hidden.

This award winning film from Nanfu Wang is co-presented by Human Rights Watch Film Festival & New York Women in Film & Television
