Directed by Liang Zhao | 2009

Liang Zhao’s courageous and often-devastating work of cinematic activism documents the plight of “petitioners”: Chinese citizens who travel to Beijing to report abuses by local authorities, only to find themselves caught in a Kafkaesque limbo of bureaucratic corruption and intimidation. Shot, often secretly, over the course of twelve years, Petition gives voice to those fighting for justice in the face of a system intent on silencing them.
