Morning Sun creator speaks out

Carma Hinton, one of the makers of the documentary film Morning Sun, spoke at Hong Kong’s Foreign Correspondents Club a few days ago, and I sure wish I could have been there.

According to this article, she offered some keen insights into the topics that intrigue me the most, including the Mao cult as it exists today, the current regime’s refusal to examine or even discuss (meaningfully) the Cultural Revolution, future risk of a peasant uprising, how dificult it is to make a film in China (Morning Sun was mainly filmed in the US), and why separating the Cultural Revolution’s victims from the victimisers is such a tricky business.

This is one movie I have got to see.
