Free China: The Courage to Believe
As political scandals surface and tensions rise along with more than one hundred and fifty thousand protests occurring each year inside China, this timely documentary also highlights the issue of unfair trade practices with the West and how Internet technologies and the re-emergence of traditional Chinese culture are helping bring freedom to 1.3 billion people in China.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[The] stories, unobstructed by any attempt at balance, build in narrative power ..."
‑ David DeWitt, New York Times
"Free China: The Courage to Believe is a rousing call-to-arms, a demand that the international community take the same fearless approach that Zeng and Lee did in defiance of Chinese human rights atrocities."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"Free China: The Courage to Believe delivers a powerful, if at times heavy-handed, warning: The systematic and state-sanctioned persecution of peaceful citizens is alive and well in China."
‑ Robin Migdol, Village Voice
"A damning nonfiction look at the human rights abuses of China, as filtered specifically through the oppression of Falun Gong practitioners and two sympathetic, steel-spined subjects."
‑ Brent Simon,
"Though his treatment of the subject is often superficial, Perlman makes a clear argument for the broader implications, especially for Western consumers."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"Earnest, interesting, but not wholly satisfying treatment of China's Falun Gong movement."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
