Description:

Southern Circuit is the nation’s first regional tour of independent filmmakers, providing communities with an interactive way of experiencing independent film.

See the indie film, Free China: The Courage to Believe  at the Morris Museum of Art. After viewing the movie, enjoy a question-and-answer session with filmmaker Michael Perlman.

From the award-winning director Michael Perlman, Free China: The Courage to  Believe  examines widespread human rights violations in China through the remarkable stories of Jennifer Zeng, a mother and former Communist Party member; Dr. Charles Lee, a Chinese- American businessman; and hundreds of thousands of peaceful citizens, who are imprisoned, tortured and subjected to slave labor for their spiritual beliefs. The film highlights how Internet technologies are aiding human rights activists around the world, by allowing uncensored information into closed societies. The film also sheds light on how a re-emergence of traditional Chinese culture and spirituality are helping bring about a new China.
