One Child Nation

MA15+ Documentary

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for One Child Nation at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

Sunday, August 4 at 4PM

Director Nanfu Wang is a member of the One Child Generation in China. After becoming a mother herself, she uncovers the untold history of China's one-child policy and the generations of parents and children forever shaped by this social experiment.  

Traumatic recollections from her own family’s recent past unleash a dizzying number of revelations from journalists, officials, parents, and activists. This brilliant combination of cultural reporting and interpersonal reckoning manages to encapsulate decades of underreported events making them accessible even to viewers with no prior understanding of the policy's history.

Densely informative yet always grounded in deep personal investment and clear-eyed compassion - Hollywood Reporter
