State surveillance. Harassment. Imprisonment. Human rights activist Ye Haiyan, AKA Sparrow, knew she faced these risks when she went to Hainan Province to seek justice for six elementary school girls who were sexually abused by their principal. But the scale and intensity of the government's reaction surprised even the most seasoned activists across China. 'The Road from Hainan' follows Sparrow as she was chased from town to town by local governments, national secret police, and even her own neighbors.Written by
down the the communists! a rare and brave film about mainland China.
It is so hard to do any anti-communist protest, investigation, etc. The fact that this film was made is already a miracle.
On the other hand, this film could have more details and more personal interview. Even if the communist police and others destroyed the videos, camera, she can still interview those who are involved. and this film can give details about why those people were arrested, what happened when they were arrested. It could have more information.
I gave it a 9 simply because how brave she was. If every person in mainland China tries to defend for human rights, the evil chinese government would have been destroyed long time ago.
