A multiple-award-winning documentary about Zola and Tiger Temple – two groundbreaking Chinese citizen journalists

“A delightful surprise” – Variety

Synopsis: With the Chinese government employing 40,000 “internet police,” more than half a million websites are blocked in the country. Local TV stations only publicize “the good news.” The rising tide of censorship has aroused a wave of citizen reporters committed to investigating local news stories and crime scenes. This timely and probing documentary tracks rogue bloggers Zola and Tiger Temple as they risk political persecution to become China’s uncensored eyes and ears.
