It was a 36-year-long social experiment that led to horrible human rights violations, the effects of which will play out in China for years to come.

Filmmakers Nanfu Wang and Jialing Zhang explore China’s one-child policy, which made it illegal for couples to have more than one child, in their documentary One Child Nation, our selection for this month’s Through the Lens screening. The film is a personal journey for both women that dives deep into the lasting impacts of a policy that has had devastating results.  

On Wednesday, Feb. 26, Jialing Zhang will join Doug for a Q&A following a screening of One Child Nation as part of our Through the Lens series with the Utah Film Center at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. For more information, go to www.kuer.org or www.utahfilmcenter.org.
