THE MAN WHO DEFIED BEIJING
The forgotten Nobel Peace Prize winner
Human rights hero and 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo was a key figure in the Tiananmen uprising. He was arrested under the same security law China imposed upon Hong Kong, spent nine years in jail, and died a few weeks upon his release.
His name remains little known outside of Asia as the Chinese regime has done everything possible to erase it from our collective memory. Alas, for the Beijing masters, Liu Xiaobo left a political legacy in the form of a lengthy interview before his arrest.
This exceptional film is his legacy supplemented with the testimonials of those closest to him. The portrayal of the great Man is also the compelling story of China's radical mutations.
