Taiwan Film Fest to Show Uighur Documentary

From the CBC:

A film festival in Taiwan has announced it will be screening a documentary about the exiled leader of China’s Uighur minority, in a move that’s bound to upset the Chinese government.

Organizers at the Kaohsiung Film Festival said Saturday that The 10 Conditions of Love, about World Uighur Congress head Rebiya Kadeer, will be shown during the festival, which runs Oct. 16-29.

Festival spokesperson Liu Hsiu-ying said the film fits perfectly with the event’s “people power” theme, adding that “we hope people will not see it from a political angle.”
