Independent Lens: Please Vote For Me

Independent Lens recently went inside a classroom in the Chinese city of Wuhan to witness a rather interesting experiment in democracy. Recently, elementary students at the Evergreen Primary School there were asked to elect a class monitor. Filmmaker Weijun Chen took his cameras inside the classroom to document this process, and the results are quite fascinating. Visitors to the site can learn about Chen and his work in "The Filmmakers" area. When here, visitors shouldn't neglect to read Chen's statement on democracy and to take a look at his biography. Moving on, visitors should also click on the "China" area. Here they will find information about China's one-child policy, their educational system, and some of the patriotic songs featured in the film. In the "Learn More" visitors can make their way through a collection of external links that complement the material covered in the film. Finally, visitors can watch a preview of the film and also offer their own feedback on the program.
