One Child Nation 

Directed by Nanfu Wang and Jialing Zhang, both of whom grew up in China under the one-child policy, this documentary details the untold history of China’s infamous birth planning program and how it went on to deeply affect parents and children involved. The documentary is an emotional rollercoaster, exploring the knock-on effects of a devastating social experiment that resulted in shocking human rights violations, from abandoned newborns, to forced sterilisations and abortions, and government abductions. It makes for some intense viewing but it’s well worth the watch.
