Bengaluru, India—A major thought-provoking event is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 16, by the Falun Dafa Association of India to screen the film Human Harvest, the Canadian award-winning documentary based on the horrendous human rights abuses in China, followed by an interactive panel discussion.
The film Human Harvest (or Davids and Goliath) is directed by Canadian filmmaker Leon Lee. The 2014-documentary film is based on the investigative work by the two Canadian Nobel Peace Prize nominees, David Matas and David Kilgour.
The film, which won the prestigious Peabody Award, uncovers the grave issue of the Chinese state-run hospitals involved in harvesting and selling organs by killing tens of thousands of prisoners of conscience.
Human Harvest has been recognized for its compelling story-telling and exposing how innocent prisoners of faith are being used as a “live organ bank” to support China’s multi-billion dollar transplant business.
It revolves around the forced organ harvesting trade ongoing in China—the main victims of this mass genocide are the adherents of Falun Dafa, a spiritual system based on self-improvement, and other minority groups like Uyghurs, House Christians and Tibetan Buddhists.
Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) is an ancient meditation system that was introduced in China in 1992 and grew immensely popular world over due to its profound health benefits. It’s estimated that by the late 1990s more than 70-100 million people were doing Falun Dafa’s peaceful meditative exercises in China alone.
However, on July 20, 1999, the former chief of the Chinese communist regime, Jiang Zemin, announced an illegal nationwide campaign of persecution against the peaceful practice of Falun Dafa, that continues to today.
The screening of the film will be held at Bengaluru’s Suchitra Auditorium on Sept.16, 2018, at 10.30 a.m. It will be followed by an interactive session with Aakar Patel, the Executive Director of Amnesty International India, and Sanjiv Bhalla, a representative of Falun Dafa Association of India. The session will be moderated by actor-director Prakash Belawadi.
