LETTER FROM MASANJIA - Examines a Devastating Tale of Human Rights Violations in Current Day China - Release Information



Coming off of a wildly successful festival run and excellent enthusiastic early critical reviews – Leon Lee’s “Letter From Masanjia” has been hailed by audiences and critics alike as one of the best docs of 2018, taking home Audience Award for Documentary Feature at the 2018 Asian American International Film Festival and it was nominated as a top 20 audience favorite at this year’s Hot Docs Film Festival. A devastating tale of human rights violations in current day China with corporate giants across the globe receiving prisoner labor efforts for Halloween decorations, asking no questions in a price for pennies on the dollar. This is the tale of one political prisoner's desperate plea to alert the world to horrors most of society sweeps under the carpet.

Parade Deck Films will open “Letter From Masanjia” theatrically in New York and Los Angeles beginning on September 14th, 2018 and will expand into additional markets in the following weeks. Later this year Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, will bring the film to audiences across North America on VOD/Digital platforms on December 4th.
