China’s One Child Policy was introduced in 1979 to limit population growth and further the nation’s economic development. The policy was strictly enforced and is estimated to have prevented 400 million births. After having her first child, director Nanfu Wang (HOOLIGAN SPARROW, BIFF 2016) decides to look into her own family’s experiences with the policy. ONE CHILD NATION is full of shocking stories from journalists, parents and activists which create a dark but nuanced image of the policy’s immediate and long-term consequences.
