Controversy

In today's Age:

Beijing pressures film festival to dump documentary

It must have been a bit of a shock for poor Richard Moore to have an irate and insistent Chinese consulate on the phone. I mean, he's a festival director, not a politician or diplomat. Ah, nothing like a bit of controversy!

And great publicity for a documentary which may of otherwise gone under the radar.

It's China. What do you expect?

I agree with both of you, Chris and Anon. Not only does it draw attention to the film, but also the States of Dissent stream that (without looking it up), I'm assuming it's a part of.
