Chinese Propaganda: Lesson in Forbidden Territory (2014)

Directors: Eric Darbré, Axel Royer
Producer: Olivier Wlodarczyk,
Production: Ego Productions, France télévision, Public sénat


An authoritarian People’s Republic or real dictatorship? This documentary reveals the real face of China and get inside the propaganda machine. For the 1st time, a French director-journalist joined an official trip to the heart of one of the most secret and unstable regions in China: Xinjiang, an area that’s normally out of bounds to tourists. Thanks to reliable contacts amongst the organisers of this “Chinese tour” and the help of diasporas based in Europe and Central Asia, and thanks also to accounts given here for the 1st time by Turkish-speaking Muslims and footage of the most recent revolts, this film draws a parallel between a slick, consensual tour and the distress of an entire race.
