The New York Times called this human rights docu-thriller "potent, an important story, well-told." To the LA Times, its "an amazing film." Don't miss it at Calgary's Globe Cinema through Nov. 1. Letter from Masanjia begins when a mother in Oregon finds a desperate SOS note in a box of 'Made in China' Halloween decorations from Kmart. It continues inside China where the letter's author risks his life to expose the brutal, ongoing persecution of human rights defenders. Together, these unlikely heroes expose and change communist China's terrorizing policies against millions whose ideologies differ from the government's. This Halloween, see the real-life thriller that began in a torturous tombstone factory in China. Ultimately a beacon of hope, Letter from Masanjia reveals the real-life horror that our goods are sometimes made by political prisoners' forced labor.
