From the invite: "High Tech, Low Life" (view film trailer), an award-winning documentary that emerged out of the prestigious Sundance Film Insitute, follows the journey of two of China’s first citizen reporters. Armed only with laptops, cell phones, and digital cameras, they become independent one-man news stations, while simultaneously navigating China’s evolving censorship regulations and trying to avoid political persecution. More than ever in our age of digital communications, filmmakers play a crucial role in illuminating and communicating the struggles and triumphs of people all over the world. It is our pleasure to screen a film at our 2016 China Forum that exemplifies this mission of civic courage. We hope you will be able to join us to celebrate and share these important stories.
