Video Sample: Falun Gong Audio Slideshow

The religious group known as Falun Gong has long faced persecution in China. How severe the persecution is within that country, or whether the group’s complaints are legitimate, are debatable while the claims of both sides go uninvestigated. But at the Falun Gong rally at Battery Park in August, there were many families and individuals willing to testify on the effects of the struggle on their own lives.

This is the story as told by artist Amy Lee and her daughter, Meng Lin, about being separated during Amy’s imprisonment and her flight from China to America. For now, it is the viewer’s responsibility to judge the veracity of her story. The production and editing of this slideshow are by no means intended to imply my support or skepticism of Falun Gong.
