Gay Documentary Mines China’s One-Child Policy

ruby_subway-1.jpg
Filmmaker Ruby Yang enjoys controversy. The Chinese American’s nationals previous film caused a stir by tracking AIDS orphans. Now she’s looking at how the Communist Government’s reproductive laws lead to multiple lives:

“There’s a lot of pressure to produce an heir,” Yang says. “Many gay men are married and live a double life. They lie to their parents, lie to their wives.”

The half-hour film, provisionally called Double Life, is expected to be completed by May, but Yang is not counting on a public release in China. Instead, she hopes the film will get exposure on the international festival circuit.

We’ve no doubt Yang will get her wish: her aforementioned AIDS-orphan movie won an Academy Award.
