One Child Nation

One Child Nation

Now with her own child a filmmaker returns to China to explore the now abandoned One Child policy, which profoundly impacted on the lives of a generation. Intimately told from many perspectives including from her own family, those who enforced the policy culturally and medically and from those who traded in the resulting abandoned babies many of whom were adopted by western families.    “A startling account of collective trauma.” Hollywood Reporter
