About the Film
This documentary uncovers, with chilling honesty, the untold history of China's one-child policy and the generations who were forever shaped by this social experiment. Through revelations shared by journalists, officials, parents and activists, One Child Nation sheds light on the widespread enforcement of sterilization, child abandonment, and state-sponsored kidnappings. The film, which was awarded the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize at the 35th Sundance Film Festival, carries interviews with both victims and instigators, disrupting decades of silence on a practice that destroyed countless lives through propaganda, brainwash and terrorization.
