Movie Night: Letter from Masanjia
2/16 (Wed.) Letter from Masanjia 《求救信》
▌Introduction 影片介紹

When an SOS note from a political prisoner in China is discovered in a box of Kmart Halloween decorations by a mom in Oregon, it sparks headlines that push the Chinese government to abolish its cruel labour camp system, and inspires the note’s author to expose ongoing human rights violations In China, despite the risks.

Directed by Peabody Award winner Leon Lee, Letter from Masanjia is an official Selection of the 2018 Hot Docs Canadian Documentary Film Festival.

The filmmakers risked everything to capture secret footage and show the world how China treats activists.

《求救信》從美國俄勒岡州的一名普通女性朱麗•凱斯(Julie Keith) 在超市購買的萬聖節裝飾品中意外發現一封信開始。這封信竟是從八千公里之外的中國瀋陽馬三家勞教所祕密傳出的求救信。信中講述了馬三家勞教所內駭人聽聞的人權迫害真相。凱斯將這封信上傳到社交媒體後,吸引了包括CNN、FOX News、《紐約時報》、《環球郵報》等多家國際媒體的關註,引發一系列連鎖反應,最終導致中國勞教制度的解體。

在世界另一端——中國,神祕的寫信者孫毅已經從馬三家勞教所釋放。他聽聞這一消息,冒著自己和家人安全的風險,決定進一步揭露這場對人權的迫害。他與「皮博迪」獎獲獎導演李雲翔(Leon Lee)合作,在嚴密監控下用鏡頭記錄下他真實的生活,並走訪曾經的馬三家勞教人員,獲取第一手資料。影片還根據孫毅本人手繪的場景,用動畫的方式反映了他在馬三家勞教所期間的遭遇。《求救信》向公眾展示了這名斯文的中國工程師和一位美國普通家庭主婦是如何改寫歷史的。
