More about ‘Hard to Believe’:

“Hard to Believe” is a serious investigation into one of the most horrifying medical crimes of our time: forced live organ harvesting from tens of thousands of Chinese prisoners of conscience, and the response—or lack of it—around the world.

From an author’s 7-year investigation to a doctor’s confession; the determination of the son of a Holocaust survivor, to the persistence of a culturally-challenged victim community, “Hard To Believe” explores the mystery of why so few people seem to be paying attention to a crime so horrific it goes beyond belief.

More about “In the Name of Confucius”:

“In the Name of Confucius” is the first documentary exposé of the Chinese government’s multi-billion dollar Confucius Institute (CI), a Chinese language program now found in over 1,600 universities and schools world wide, and the growing global controversies surrounding it—loss of academic integrity, violations to human rights codes, foreign influence, and even potential infringements on national security.
