C4 is proud to present the US Premier “Searching for Lin Zhao’s Soul”, AKA In Search of Lin Zhao’s Soul 寻找林昭的灵魂 (2004) in Mandarin with English subtitles.
This documentary film is about the outstanding Beijing University student Lin Zhao, who was labeled a rightist when she criticized the Anti-Rightist Campaign in 1950s. She was imprisoned and later executed. In Philip Pan’s recent book “Out of Mao’s Shadow”, two chapters were written about this documentary, quoting the filmmaker Hu Jie about Lin Zhao: “(the film is) inspired by her courage, and her uncompromising sense of justice… It was extraordinary that a great woman like Lin Zhao once lived in China… I thought she was a national treasure.”
