China’s One Child Policy, the rigid population control measure in force for over thirty years that made it illegal for couples to have more than one child, ended in 2015, but the process of dealing with the trauma of its brutal enforcement is only just beginning. From award-winning documentarian Nanfu Wang (Hooligan Sparrow, I Am Another You) and Jialing Zhang, the sweeping One Child Nation explores the ripple effect of this devastating social experiment, uncovering one shocking human rights violation after another: abandoned newborns, forced sterilizations and abortions, government abductions, and a lucrative adoption-to-foreigners market. Returning to China from America with the perspective of being a new mother, Wang digs fearlessly into her own personal life, obtaining eye-opening firsthand accounts from her family members and neighbors. One Child Nation is a stunning, in-depth indictment of the mindset that prioritizes national agenda over human life—bearing witness to the truth as China has already begun to erase the horrors of its “population war” from public record and memory. Winner, Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary, 2019 Sundance Film Festival. (Partially subtitled)
