abstract
Meet Ms. Rebiya Kadeer, a human rights activist twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. She is the impassioned though graying exiled leader of the Uyghurs, a Muslim people whose ancestral home, East Turkestan, was annexed by the Chinese in 1949 and re-named Xinxiang province . Since then the Chinese have dominated politically, culturally and economically, much as they have done in Tibet. Ms. Kadeer was fiercely nationalistic since her youth. Married off at an early age and bearing six children in close succession, she was divorced by her husband for her activism. Penniless, she rose through her wits and industry to become one of the wealthiest people in China, after Deng ushered in an era of capitalism. Remaining politically active, she paid the price. Several of her sons languish in Chinese prisons while she and her second husband, in exile, keep alive the protest movement from abroad. Using archival footage, the film traces the violent conflict between Chinese and Uyghurs. She is the tireless head of the Uyghur American Association, based in Washington, D.C. , where she lobbies Congress to press for human rights in China.
