Sun Village, feature documentary, 2015 (Beijing, China)
Director/Producer


'Sun Village' is essentially a home founded by ex-policewoman Zhang Shuqin. She saw the immense need for taking care of these children whose parents have just been convicted and travelled all over China to bring them together so she could make sure they were cared for until their parents' sentences are over. These children all live together and eat together and are taught to be responsible and to be thankful for all the good in their lives despite the situation their parents' choices have put them in.
