Description

Multi-award winning documentary In the Name of Confucius is the first film exposing the growing global controversies surrounding the Chinese government’s multi-billion dollar Confucius Institute (CI) - a loss of academic integrity, violations to human rights codes, foreign influence, and even potential infringements on national security.

There are Confucius Institutes in 14 Australian universities and Confucius Classrooms in 67 Australian schools.

In the Name of Confucius has won 10 international awards and nominations, and seen highly successful screenings in America, Canada, United Kingdom, Poland, Taiwan, Spain, South Africa and Germany.

Audiences described the film as an eye-opener to a hidden truth and a timely reminder of an important issue - how we should deal with the unintended outcomes of our strengthening ties with a rising Communist China, as Beijing spends an estimated $10 billion annually on “external propaganda”, including the Confucius Institute initiative.

Film screening will be followed by Q&A with Tammy Franks, SA Greens MLC, John Xiao, former Chinese language teacher and current CEO of Melbourne Epoch Times.
