RISE TV is bringing you two new movies. Finding Courage is the true story of one family who dared to be free. Hard to Believe is a documentary about the killing of prisoners of conscience for their organs in China.
Courage. Sacrifice. Justice. Movies these days draw on these elements for a more interesting story: the more sensational, the better. … Right? But what about the truly astounding stories that remain quietly shared between family and friends? What about the truth that we don’t get to see on the big screen, but that is perhaps even harder to believe than fiction?
Finding Courage: OUT NOW on RISE TV
A former journalist for the Chinese Communist Party, Yifei Wang, living in exile in San Francisco struggles to settle into life in America while working to heal her family’s wounds from their tragic past. She is seeking justice for the murder of her sister at the hands of the Chinese authorities.
Rare, undercover footage of a meeting with the director of the labor camp where Yifei’s sister was killed reveals shocking admissions of torture, slave labor, corruption, and a general disregard for human life pervading the camp system today.
Exclusive interviews with former Chinese Communist Party officials provide a unique insight into the hidden world of terror that many Chinese citizens live without ever knowing that life can, and does, exist with freedom outside their world.

Hard to Believe: OUT NOW on RISE TV
It’s hard to believe that doctors would kill for profit. It’s even harder to believe that major media are not investigating. Watch this award-winning insight into why the world is ignoring China's mass-market sale of human organs.
It’s happened before: governments killing their own citizens for their political or spiritual beliefs. But it’s never happened like this. It’s happened so often that the world doesn’t always pay attention. But is economic influence the reason that this time, it’s going largely unreported?
Why are innocent people being carved up so their organs can be sold? A rising volume of victims is left in its wake. And it’s still happening today.
This documentary astounded audiences, winning 18 film awards, including:
➤Best Documentary: Hoboken International Film Festival
➤Official Selection: international Free Thought Film Festival
➤Official Selection: Docs Without Borders Film Festival
➤Official Selection: STIFF Seattle Transmedia & Independent Film Festival

“It is not up for discussion as to whether murder for parts is taking place; it’s now just a question of whether we’re going to continue to put up with it.”

Why should I watch these movies?
The Chinese Communist Party lied to the world. They covered up evidence of their human rights abuses and initiated an extensive propaganda campaign to feign innocence. The CCP continues to deny wrongdoing to this day and even now—right this very minute as you read this—it is persecuting China’s people.
It’s time the world learned the truth. By watching these films, Finding Courage and Hard to Believe, YOU can be informed, YOU can bring awareness to the atrocities, and YOU can help bring them to an end.
Imagine what would happen if we all stood up for justice.
Where can I learn more about the CCP’s coverup and the truth about Communism?
We compiled a short list of TV shows and movies, news resources, political and medical initiatives, and books and reports that reveal the truth. We encourage you to do your own research to find even more information, and share it with others.

From Marx, Lenin, and Stalin to Mao, Xi Jinping, and Jiang Zemin, the story goes deeper than we ever learned in school.

And why have so many been misled by this evil ideology?

➤Bloody Harvest, also known as the Kilgour–Matas Report, was a 140-page investigative report into allegations of live, forced organ harvesting in China.

This “is a must-read for every freedom-loving individual. The book reveals the ways in which the communist specter has burrowed into the minds of today’s people. It charts communism’s global advance and explains how this specter has embedded itself in nearly every facet of today’s society — from education to the judicial system — and the path humanity must take to escape its grip. ‘It should be emphasized that nearly all people in the world, especially those who attended college after the 1960s, have been exposed to communist influences.’"
