I loved this film; it is pertinent to Canadians because it shows how helpless peole are when there is corruption and no rule of law to portect them.

PandaBear - I'm not sure I understand what your objection to this film is. NFB has produced numerous films about China over the preceding decades, this being just one of them. As for your contention that China doesn't make documentaries like this about other countries, I can assure you that CCTV (Chinese) does.

Sorry, why is this on the NFB? What does it have to do with Canada exactly?
You don't see the Chinese making documentaries about Canada like this.
Grow up Canada. Thank god I left you to live in China.
