21st century message in a bottle

Truth is stranger than fiction, and none more so than the story of Chinese political prisoner Sun Yi, who managed to alert the world about the inhuman conditions of the Masanjia labour camp by smuggling a letter out in a Halloween decoration bound for the US. In the exceptional LETTER FROM MASANJIA, the persecuted Falun Gong member teams up with director Leon Lee to share his experiences with the totalitarian side of the Chinese Communist Party. This is a remarkable film about a remarkable man told in a highly remarkable way.
