Forced organ harvesting of political prisoners in China was first exposed in 2006 in a short undercover investigative clip by the BBC (among others), but it wasn’t until recently that this horrifying practice started to get the full attention of filmmakers. In 2014, director Leon Lee released Human Harvest, in which he filmed two Nobel Prize winners soberly and carefully investigating the question of Chinese organ harvesting. Their unhappy conclusion — that China is indeed harvesting live prisoners on a “just in time” basis — gave intellectual gravitas to the human rights campaign to stop this practice. A second documentary, Hard to Believe, was made in 2015 backing them up. It aired on PBS and won numerous awards. The latest film to cover this subject, The Bleeding Edge, is a narrative film that tells the story of a young entrepreneur who receives an organ transplant in China, only to find out that the organ was among those taken from prisoners. It just premiered in Canada and will be shown at the Vancouver Asian Film Festival on November 5th.
