The unspeakable Chinese practice of organ harvesting is exposed in this Peabody Award winning documentary. In the early 2000s doctors around the world began to notice large numbers of their patients flying to China for organ transplants. An organ was typically ready within a week. The availability and number of organs was baffling, until horrific stories began to leak out. It was rumoured that hospitals were harvesting live prisoners for their organs but could this actually be true? Human Harvest takes you through the international investigation led by Nobel Peace prize nominees that is shocking the world.

Following the evidences and the witnesses, the film digs out a horrific hidden truth that is more dramatic than a fiction. I've heard of the illegal organ harvest in China but didn't know that's a systematic crime orchestrated by the Chinese government. The archive materials plus the recreation bring you to the crime scenes. One of the many goodies of the film is that it has access to a few patients who went to China to have the organ transplant operation. Their testimony echo the two Canadian investigators' findings, so that it makes the reasoning flawless. There is no lack of suspension and tension yet very touching. Highly recommend!
