Event Details

DESCRIPTION

In the Name of Confucius will be premiered in Melbourne, at the Victorian Parliament House for free and open to the public - a rare opportunity to join people across different sectors and meet stakeholders.  Additional screenings are being held right around Australia, and anyone with an interest in education, human rights, moral ethics, or foreign government influence using soft power, must see this investigative documentary.  

This documentary is the first to expose China’s multi-billion dollar Confucius Institute (CI), a Chinese language program on foreign campuses, and the growing global controversies surrounding it—loss of academic integrity, violations of 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.

Since its completion in 2016, In the Name of Confucius has won 10 international awards and nominations, and seen highly successful screenings in America, Canada, 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 Doris Liu – Director, Producer, Writer

Doris Liu is an emerging documentary filmmaker and an award-winning journalist with Mark Media, based in Toronto. A first generation immigrant, her passion is to tell compelling China/Chinese related stories that resonate in Canadian society and the West.

HOSTED BY: Dr Rachel Carling-Jenkins MP

SUPPORTED BY: Australian Tibet Council, Australia Value Alliance, Epoch Times Media, New Tang Dynasty Television
