This film chronicles the start, lives, challenges, and careers of two uncensored news bloggers in modern Communist China. Each one does not know the other at the start, but eventually dovetail nicely into awareness. The people are normal, believable, and very motivated.
The music, cinematography, editing, all of it are amazing and topnotch. I honestly am not one for owning let alone re-watching documentaries, but I've already put this on my "To Purchase Blu-Ray" list. This film inspires you, informs you, and wants you to reach through the screen and help out these individuals in their quest for helping China move into the 21st Century of media.
If you are ever interested in censorship in Communist countries, Asian modern culture, independent news blogging, or want to learn more about personal struggles with your dream and reality, watch "High Tech, Low Life" right now.
