The Screen Guide

CHINA’S ARTFUL DISSIDENT follows China’s foremost political cartoonist and street artist, Badiucao, exiled in Australia, who uses his art to take on Chinese President Xi Jinping and his authoritarian regime. Badiucao's goals are unshakeable: stop the whitewashing of the history of the Tiananmen Square massacre; expose ongoing human rights abuses; and fight for Hong Kong’s freedom. It's a campaign that takes him across the globe as he undertakes provocative performance art from Sydney to Berlin, meeting fellow dissidents as he travels, including survivors of the Tiananmen Square massacre who share powerful first-hand testimonies. Like Banksy, the artist remains incognito, literally hiding behind a mask. But unlike Banksy his life and that of his family are at stake, as the Chinese government go all out to stop his art.
