Amazon Studios has unveiled the harrowing trailer for “One Child Nation,” winner of the U.S. Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival,
Directed by Nanfu Wang (“Hooligan Sparrow”) and Jialing Zhang (“Complicit”), the documentary traces the untold history China’s one-child policy from its inception in 1979 to its dissolution in 2015.
Wang recently spoke about what she hopes audiences will take away from her film, speaking with Women and Hollywood: “I hope people leaving the theater will become aware of and remember what happened in China during the one-child policy. I also hope people outside of China can think about their own situation and their own history.” She added, “Propaganda doesn’t only happen in China. It takes savviness to recognize what is propaganda around us, and more often than not, it’s more pervasive in our lives than we think it is.”
“One Child Nation” premieres August 9 on Amazon Prime.
