A Film about Organ Harvesting: "Hard to Believe" at Los Altos Library

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Los Altos Library
A documentary about organ harvesting.    From the film description:   "Winner of 11 film awards and broadcast on US public television, this documentary examines the controversial issue of forced live organ harvesting in China from prisoners of conscience. It's hard to believe that doctors would remove the organs of people against their will and then sell these organs for profit. Yet despite it happening tens of thousands of times in China, and it may be happening still, no major media has investigated the story. The stories and the lack of international media response is told by two-time Emmy Award-winning director/producers Ken Stone and Irene Silber." For more information on the film see Hard to Believe.

Film showing followed by a Q&A session with local activist Shuang Ji.
