The award-winning documentary, Free China: The Courage to Believe, is an inspiring account of triumph in the face of adversity in the search for freedom. It tells the courageous stories of Chinese-Australian Jennifer Zeng and Chinese-American Charles Lee, who were persecuted by the Chinese government for their spiritual practice.

The film is a powerful exposé of the widespread human rights violations taking place in today’s China. It addresses issues of forced organ harvesting, human rights, slave and prison camp labour, information censorship and international corporations’ ethical conduct. At the same time, it is an inspiring example of what people of conscience are doing to make a difference.
