HUMAN HARVEST: IL MERCATO ILLEGALE DEGLI ORGANI IN CINA @ TERRA DI TUTTI FILM FESTIVAL Documentari e cinema sociale dal sud del mondo 10ª edizione | 12-16 ottobre 2016 Il Trailer del film: vimeo.com/183402724 Un Paese che fino al 2010 non aveva neanche un sistema di donazione degli organi, com’è riuscito a divenire il luogo in cui tutti possono ottenere un trapianto di cuore e polmone in meno di una settimana? Per anni la Cina ha sostenuto che questi organi provenivano da prigionieri giustiziati, ma dai controlli emergono gravi anomalie. In questo pluripremiato documentario, i candidati Premio Nobel per la Pace David Matas e David Kilgour, parlano con i medici costretti a rimuovere organi dai prigionieri politici ancora in vita, con gli ex prigionieri sottoposti a ripetuti esami del sangue e indagano sulle cliniche ospedaliere, che ricevono con facilità donazioni di organi da viventi. Leon Lee è un giornalista, regista e produttore di programmazione cinese da oltre 10 anni. La sua casa di produzione Flying Cloud si dedica alla creazione di prodotti che stimolano i fruitori a riflettere. Lee esplora questioni delicate e complesse per comprendere la Cina dei giorni nostri, e racconta storie drammatiche che altrimenti non uscirebbero dai confini cinesi. _____________________________________________________________ TERRA DI TUTTI FILM FESTIVAL Documentaries and social cinema exhibition 10th edition| 12-16 october 2016 Terra di Tutti Film Festival began in 2007, with the vital aim of giving a voice to the many documentary makers who use the video medium as a form of critical expression, scrutinising the world and the issues that affect the countries of the southern hemisphere. Sponsored by two non-governmental organisations working towards international cooperation for development, GVC (Gruppo di Volontariato Civile) and COSPE (Cooperazione per lo sviluppo dei Paesi Emergenti), TTFF brings documentaries and social cinema from the global south to Bologna, with the aim of revealing the realities of life in these countries, of people and social battles that are often ‘invisible’ into discussion. The festival welcomes many types of audiovisual media and short films, with narratives concentrating on the fight for equal rights, gender, protecting freedom, active citizenship, and environmental and ecological concerns. Terra di Tutti Film Festival would like to provide true visions of the south, without rhetoric, censorship or pity, but instead with the belief that just one individual, with an open mind and a refusal to accept the idea of an immutable reality, can help us to change the present and work together towards better futures. And we can do this through cinema.

Winner of the Peabody Award for Documentary and Canadian Screen Award Nominee, the film investigates government sanctioned organ harvesting in China linked to the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Human Harvest follows two Nobel Peace Prize nominees, renowned immigration and human rights lawyer David Matas and former member of Canadian parliament David Kilgour as they investigate allegations of live organ harvesting in China. In 2006, the Kilgour & Matas Report alleged that organs were harvested from living prisoners of conscience, mostly from detained Falun Gong practitioners. Human Harvest has raised awareness of the organ harvesting trade in China and the inferred violation of human rights. Human Harvest director Leon Lee will join us at the Art Center of Kobe on October 28 for the IAFOR Documentary Film Award & Festival 2016. Following the film screening, Mr. Lee will host a Q&A session, discussing the issues raised by the film.
