One Child Nation
September 23, 2019 • 7:30 pm PDT
The 2019 IDA Documentary Screening Series brings this year’s most acclaimed documentaries to industry insiders and film lovers as a series of curated film screenings through the fall season! Join in a free screening of ‘One Child Nation’ on Monday 9/23 at the Landmark Theater at 7:30PM.
For more than 35 years, China enforced a radical experiment in population control, restricting couples to a single child and imposing harsh penalties on those who violated the policy. In the 2019 Sundance U.S. Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary ‘One Child Nation,’ Chinese-born filmmakers Nanfu Wang (Hooligan Sparrow) and Jialing Zhang dig fearlessly into the past with startling testimony from victims and perpetrators, including members of Wang’s own family, as well as archival footage, vintage propaganda materials and intimate first-hand accounts of the policy’s horrific consequences.
Stick around after the screening for a moderated discussion with Emmy-nominated Director Nanfu Wang and reception at Landmark Wine Bar.
