Unsilenced, a new film by independent filmmaker Leon Lee
Storyline: When the Chinese Communist Party launched a brutal crackdown against 100 million of its own citizens, a jaded American reporter and a team of university students risked everything to expose the deadly propaganda and fight for freedom.
Though the story is set in China, the theme is universal.
The film exposes how a state-run propaganda machine can fabricate deadly lies and crush the voices of dissent. It also shows the role that truthful journalism can have in exposing oppression.
Due to the Chinese regime’s influence in Hollywood, no theatrically released movie (except for documentaries) had ever focused on current human rights issues in China. Unsilenced was the first movie to do so.
