One Child NationDocumentaries
Directors Nanfu Wang and Jialing Zhang fearlessly peel back the layers of China’s former One Child policy to unearth its tightly held secrets.
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, this documentary illustrates the widespread effects of the policy in China and across the world. Wang’s personal story lends the film emotional authenticity through her experience of growing up under the One Child laws and, now living in the United States, having recently become a mother herself. Her investigations and interviews with those who enacted the policy reveal the traumatic and chilling truths of an unprecedented attempt to control a nation’s population.
