An authoritarian People’s Republic or a real dictatorship?

This documentary reveals the real face of China and gets inside the propaganda machine. For the first time, a director-journalist joined an official trip to the heart of one of the most secret and unstable regions in China: Xinjiang, an area that’s normally out of bounds to tourists.

Thanks to reliable contacts amongst the organizers of this “Chinese Tour” and the help of diasporas based in Europe and Central Asia, and to accounts given here for the first time by Turkish-speaking Muslims and footage of the most recent revolts, this film draws a parallel between a slick, consensual tour and the distress of an entire race.

Also available in French: Leçon de propagande chinoise en zone interdite
