Argot Pictures | Release Date: January 9, 2013
Summary: The film tracks the journey of two of China’s first citizen reporters as they travel the country – chronicling under reported news and social issues stories. Clad with laptops, cell phones, and digital cameras they develop skills as independent one-man news stations while learning to navigate China’s evolving censorship regulations and avoiding the risk of political persecution. The film follows 57-year-old Tiger Temple, who earns the title of China’s first citizen reporter after he impulsively documents an unfolding murder and 27-year-old “Zola” who recognizes the opportunity to increase his fame and future prospects by reporting on sensitive news throughout China.
