Followed by Skype Q+A with Nanfu Wang


Directors: Nanfu Wang & Lynn Zhang
85 min, U.S./China, 2019

Winner of this year’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize, returning DOC10 filmmaker Nanfu Wang (Hooligan Sparrow) fearlessly exposes China’s brutal enforcement of its one-child policy, and the devastating emotional toll it’s taken on Chinese families, including her own. Wang, who has just become a mother herself, gently balances personal revelations with a searing indictment of her native country’s appalling efforts at population control, from widespread sterilizations to state-sponsored kidnappings. Hailed by Film Comment as one of Sundance’s best films, One Child Nation follows Wang as she returns to China in search of the truth—and atonement—for her people. “Brilliant” (Indiewire) and “stirring” (, this “essential, often harrowing” (New York Times) investigation of totalitarian control and unrelenting propaganda reveals how an entire population can be convinced to commit inhumane acts in the service of the State.
