Intrigued by the cover story on L.A Times 2 weekends ago (see previous blog entry on Sept. 28th), I rented this documentary from Netflix. It's a short documentary (43 mins), so it doesn't delve into a deeper level of the "one-child policy" consequences (or aftermath?!). However, if you're interested to know how the "one-child policy" affect China on its 30th anniversary (yes, the policy started in 1979), or you want to know how it feels like to adopt a baby girl from China, this film satisfy your curiosity.
The film is well-produced by National Geographic. I actually cried a few times while watching this film. I was planning to create a lesson plan (use 2 hours) combining this documentary with the cover story on LA times for my high schoolers after Moon Festival (or after their first test).
