China’s One Child Policy, the extreme population control measure that made it illegal for couples to have more than one child, may have 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, and Jialing Zhang, One Child Nation explores the ripple effect of this devastating social experiment. Through interviews with both victims and instigators, along with revelatory data regarding the sheer number of abandoned children (nearly all of them infant girls), One Child Nation breaks through the decades of silence on a vast, unprecedented social experiment that shaped – and destroyed – countless lives.
Insider tip: “Wang’s film is intimate, thought-provoking and well-crafted. It condemns the horrors of the policy without condemning those who were brainwashed into being its vessels, and it gives voice to so many families whose agency was stolen from them (Gary Garrison, The Playlist). Manohla Dargis, The New York Times, adds: “Soul-baring and furious, the documentary One Child Nation takes a powerful, unflinching look at China’s present through its past.”
Winner of the U.S. Grand Jury Prize (Documentary) at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, ONE CHILD NATION has 5 wins and another 6 nominations for excellence and is a Metacritic.com “MUST SEE.”
