Eternal Spring

In March 2002, a state TV station in China was hijacked by members of the outlawed spiritual group Falun Gong. Their goal was to counter the government narrative about their practice. In the aftermath, police raids sweep Changchun City, and comic book illustrator Daxiong (Justice League, Star Wars), a Falun Gong practitioner, is forced to flee. He arrives in North America, blaming the hijacking for worsening violent repression. But his views are challenged when he meets the lone surviving participant to have escaped China, now living in Seoul, South Korea. Combining present-day footage with 3D animation inspired by Daxiong's art, Eternal Spring retraces the event on its 20th anniversary and brings to life an unprecedented story of defiance, harrowing eyewitness accounts of persecution, and an exhilarating tale of determination to speak up for political and religious freedoms, no matter the cost.

Film Review - POV Magazine, Pat Mullen

"This film couldn’t exist without animation. Daxiong might not be the artist he is today if not for mobilizing with his comrades to harness the power of media. The film underscores how censorship and the suppression of religion expression remain urgent concerns in China. Eternal Spring artfully articulates a people’s hunger for change."
