The UMSU International Film Festival screens Free China

January 21, 2014 — 

The fates of a woman living in Beijing and a man living in New York become inextricably linked because of a common conviction. A mother and model citizen, Jennifer Zeng was imprisoned for her faith. As she endures physical and mental torture, she has to decide: does she stand her ground and languish in jail, or does she recant her belief so she can tell her story to the world?

This is the premise behind the film Free China: The Courage to Believe, which will be screened on Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room of University Centre. It is being shown as part of the UMSU International Film Festival.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with professors from U of M and a Chinese citizen who lived in a forced labour camp in China.
