In her work in film and music and television and digital media. And she currently works for a New York-based independent film company and I had a chance to meet her recently at the National religious broadcasters convention and when I heard a story of the work she was doing.

I knew we had to have early Christian perspective because she is working to enlighten people to let them know what's going on around the world, particularly socialist and communist countries and really the threat that it proposes to us here the United States of America today so hey I'm so excited to have you on the show today. Thank you for doing the Christian perspective much. Thank you for that wonderful introduction and such an important topic the day happening in our country around the town really pay attention to what's going on. We can learn a lot from the country. Well that's something that you and your company are doing to help people work for.

We talked about films and and and the project of finding courage. Can you tell us a little bit about your personal life.always what our gifts on a personal level. If you don't mind, let us know who you are, your family and and is sound like you have an accident so you probably felt a little bit about okay I do have an accent.

Mac thinking actually and I I felt fortunate. I grew up in a conventional but I formally thought my family had Russia during the revolution the Russian Revolution, and because the people of faith I grandmother very devout and inability that they Have family together for Bill Eaton I think her in high family growing up such an important foundation for me.

But you know my family didn't really talk about their experiences in Russia or their experiences because they had gate coming at them to study it when they came in took Isaiah Russian country. They took either the culture they destroyed family that he and intently unite and they destroyed people who wanted to have quite accompanying business that the defendant very cognitive faith in my family without dignifying it as well as people of faith and they said I years after the dump I packed my family Story my dad died and my mom. I once once the great-grandparents I traveled by foot conflict in Russia down to Mongolia and down to China. They did have some time on and sometimes they were traveling at a bastion of the white Army in the cold accomplished a great chase my debate on each really lucky to provide basal body intrigue incorporate the people that were killed by communist. A etiology very absolutely terrifying times that it took five years Henley to find freedom that they went to China and before the Communist Party fell a lot of passion attended churches make on the community and that the northern pot China and in both eyes but I've had my Kevin – then the company decided to take a Civil War dead Heidi became the one-party state China and down.

I like my father grew up at this morning and Ralph in China 14 years and then he never liked to talk and said they skate to Australia. My dad was 14.

This after that I called the great famine in China publicly. The worst environmental disaster in history and current history.

The land was destroyed 70 people were destroyed on a distant have to meet my father didn't have nothing to eat and going outside.

Yet my my family a tiny passionate hunger spoke English enough China pre-attended church and my grandma and and it was wonderful. We had the Russian debt traditional Russian culture Russian to message by dancing in and out of interest in school and the 10 is Russian community where you live in Australia and Sydney thought the Lincoln school. My regular strength and that my my religious community in my family, community, visit the possession of his medical letters of interest and of any other well and quite a lot long was again I came here almost let me and yet 11 1/2 and I can keep a break tonight.

I buy dinner I had learned about despite the fact that my my family did little they didn't feel I needed to tell of the evils of the danger. I never expected that calculation on my children's generation have to take that and when I came to America in 2010. I knew that I could have more impact. I Australia and them which has been the case. He did not.

But what I found in America that is that through politics and them global agendas and end those people who intentionally want to take away that?

You deem difficult worldview and really trying to destroy that the culture taking communist ideology and collected really got into my my route. I started to really evaluate my family into we take nothing for granted and officially here in America. I really feel that that it too often we take the fate of the granted and the effect changing very encouraged by that. I like to say Mike my children like my parents never expected that a cranky, might need to flee again another country that is American about the protected freedoms and I live very pertinent that we look at the history of this because the Italianate is really scary what's happening on college campuses, leaving high school. They were American don't realize the story were regulars in a few minutes of what what your family has been through. They don't realize the threat that communism hoses not just on the freedom of people, but particularly to the church as well, and we really need to wake up F12 the work that you're doing is so important because if you're just tuning in my guest today is to reject. She is a filmmaker and has lived a life. Her family has experienced communism firsthand that they had to flee from to come to this country to gain the freedom to say has to say about how she got what she is doing dangers of communism.

I relationship I'd like to invite Ray sharing his light and joy in American less than two months after Lincoln was inaugurated president, the Civil War began. This day April 12, 1861 Confederate troops in Charleston South Carolina firing upon Fort Sumter.

The Confederate Army was unstoppable twice winning battles of Bull Run, Virginia, just 20 miles from Washington DC forcing the Union troops to retreat to the fortifications of the capital. It wasn't until the battle of Gettysburg over two years into the war.

The tide began to turn.

Pres. Lincoln confided, I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I have nowhere else to go for free transcripts, all-American limit of 1888 USA book about Christian perspective. I guess that if they were woodchip films that were so have a internationally played filmmaker with us today and the documentary became a call out bring attention to the issues involved communism in the freedom of the people will typically in the church of countries around the world of threat is being placed in the United States today is socialism is growing, even communism in becoming more popular in our country is really scary.

Okay you are filmmaker today how the world interest in filmmaking and get started. Actually, I went to college as though I have to make a choice between needed and he feels that the only thing Barry gave my hot dating a child, but I tried at that time and when I left college I actually found a job and be like that. I was very fortunate very blessed with the company ragged because I was the height of the boys that I need to come-and my my boss recognized that he needed a pretty that you have to have we here are not of the film will be a movie you see so many of the executive producer of thinking the other that were supposed talk about.

But what the difference is that what really is the producer.

Sometimes if someone cannot be to oversee the entire project search. I'm thinking about buying the book that Christians only day I thank you and that I work with produces in such a viewpoint basically they have the most important my bucket introduced me anything.

I hope all different creative people in the company in fight takes the pretty stuff I don't know what she does typically keep everything together and eventually more easy for people to understand and think they cut their financial data, one that put in the money so you will see that the producer and a name on a scale than any notoriety by Monday. Heather named his producers to write that different compact different president has been created. People who have an input on how things are going to look and come across the final decision-maker that the rest is and then another type of critique that which is more to go. Project they, like at a line produced that they I will write everything in motion by next month like clockwork.

The budget of overly detailed studies prayer for forget that the where the 03-102 defined someone I do work in all three or all of the old, but it got to my experience at the opportunity to work in old aspect of you think of I started in educational video gaming actually right-sided, but then when the company decided they wanted to stop making the same for two-year-old. I felt that was too much and I my children to be doing that, but not different was not 2020 and then eventually I need taken and an open media but I found film is the most popular format at the moment and very very effective when you have people in a room together and in watching Navy and you hear them laugh together. Height I.

Other one very powerful and very irate encouraging my needed skill building so so your company's cultural will start at all sure you're here in the United States. A colleague to Marek, and I think the feeling and found excellent in the public and also pretty stuff and and we began working together on her early in the medical leave and then he encouraged me and you really should be directing produce. I think he can direct and I probably started fighting courage which I direct and cognitive so I got a really good experience before we jump into the movie. Just curious what this works for your words you how to name a business because it may name any of and I really felt I had something in the name that would allow me to use think I'm going in Alaska and I wanted something to do with life and I just wanted to do that to remind myself that this is that a company creating product to help people look up to the divine and and to help us okay and and daily bread counted and that I and so I went through a lot of different name for something and type of down and that how that and and I could put tubing like remind me of angel wings thought that the it is important to me to remind myself permission behind company is both interesting so your company. I think primarily make documentary films. What made you decide to go that route are all built by the early Christian only deal with the communism issue or whatever were the other fellow documentary because all my work and all the buildings that in that old educational nonfiction, and so when I went in the filming the street and I have written that fiction and actors and things like that. I just thought you know never starting out a mailing originally before me and I know I can be nonfiction, and I know I can. That's right-sided enough equity like and and that go into narrating scripted film ability. His work on all the work is done so far have been focused on China and because that was and I also witnessed that firsthand. I was who I was in China that's another story that it is time so I got to see another world and I sold going on in China and now I needed here in red that that's a story that is not being held and that's where we thought it and down to me that this may be hard to believe this really made the kind of entry on the Preakness of function for the file to open now that that Christians that we come up on that. It barely started with gong practitioners.

The people of the people of faith in China on pate and again how did that turn them in carrying their open at Inc. in China and we have at that. To me the crime of the century and not talk about it felt like I would be doing it is my I'm financial basically not something that I know that it will come out of Egypt out Right-sided… Not of government that is killing people harvesting the organs any state sanctioned, and it's been carried out to hospitals with registered medical doctors old involved. It is actually horrific. If you need a high or in the notice.

A lot of people that do know I have absolute perspective on but I want them to know where they came ready over the coming from you want in a cave on a new hot hot you can go to China and you can get how work out I will get you another one in the wake of many take and that kind coming contract about the people of the street are just people of the patient, your mother that I have invested hundreds of thousands of people in a blood test that the discarded in 2183 because not illegal in China. Technically they are allowed to use the organ of imprisonment that the law from 1990: China to allow so they got show prisoners in prison to take the organs on demand and they had their blood tested and they have it cut in the Logan with naming many people who were being terribly fortunate because they were religious believers in China but they were receiving text for the health that were only related to help open extremely sufficient to that adopted wife came forward and more doctors have come forward so penetrate difficult because complicit in it truly is a kind of story to process your discharge on the earlier days were good dates. America has a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know the truly important role in God and the Bible is this.

God give you the opportunity and unique skills to make documentaries to let people know what's going all around the world and particularly, these countries for partial break or talk about one of your early films were you documented cases where the child organs from prisoners and from people in the hospital, shift gears to a movie you have now called urgent quote I want to encourage you to register to attend a culture engagement so it would be on April 30 K of her tables films are going to be a culture gave and they're going to give an early showing of their film called finding courage is powerful documentary about straight. The family open and Kate Tellis of how that movie came about what happens in the document.

This is documentary that family story and he makes because when you make documentary one rank is. You know what you want to say right people in any kind of follow that the line that you have a mind another way to do it anyway, my play, take a long time that. Do you follow at a group of people are in this case and documented that journey and didn't know where and story had to be found, and in life.

I think God provides for companies around making each one. I didn't name not take that as a blessing and on and that I have to do the best I could help story so I met a family woman Ife Wang Sheila, a former reporter in China for the Chinese Communist Party and her husband were still reporter of the Chinese Communist Party in China and at the time of the thought that people between the US and China and they story regarding quite remarkable.

She'd been through so much in China, PTP, the Chinese Communist Party.

Another group of people challenge climacteric interested in 1989, 1999 there was gong because that's not very traditionally a very traditional Chinese spiritual practice" part of and she started following that life itself. A Wang that she'll holding a banner in Tiananmen Square and found not to collate and write and thank told me that the writer can still had time to get back story from China that unbelievable and likely thing around now an American black life and look at China and unbelievable story that happening – so what where to go to communist ideology takes a great nation. That's what I found Teresa getting to be telling the story good okay okay then that is the right, how can you prove that I know I trust my subjects that I have to double check on the general and not undertaking sure checking not rely on the dependent controlling out immediately so I always do and provide the documents in the right and I found my and they provide me about their little and then his brother. He was still alive. She'd been sentenced to 13 in prison for printing five. So remember that that's happened in China and we share so that we can learn from China waiting to go a bit here so that the printing five and putting that in the prison coaching terribly. She eventually got out after 12 is a nine-month miracle story and it story as well as terrible to could barely speak and he began recovering and he began trying to figure out what is wanted because in America, China, so we have clearing story of new immigrants to America that will become understand, appreciate and love of country based on Christian values. They so appreciated that concern me and then we have undercover footage going on in the movie where the family still trying to get back to body because I want to wanted one kosher and so undercover footage acted like a candidate for because of the great great courage of his family so that essentially historian has a lot of action drama old true and it all unfolded in front of an hundred hundred hours footage going to put it together – I took a couple being ill 30th so tell you if you made these other movies really what's happening within the Chinese government of, how are you getting in the country of areal cover is extremely dangerous and is also very difficult because if you want to talk to any true egg that on China does true expert makes the objective facts and data suggest repeat the Chinese Communist Party line being fired for not getting and very difficult for leftist movie.

We took the Angola bike how conflicts are in large audience and so the angle of why so few people can you change such a horrific crime and so we were able to prove the crime happening because education with 30 by debtor but also many pallets debating Americans well so they were able to present that nation that very line becoming one of the media expert colleges why why I like to make happening for a long time.

The CPP controls the mania situation. Media platform symmetry to present maybe because they feel that maybe people cut off funding.

I had colleges safely without started to do a screening committee about Kovach Fay of lifting told by our ministration that we have too many Chinese and alcoholics and we tried to clip from the movie that we nightly funding from the ACP to American college.

No, I like to think that the huge and I to we have so many tied with controlling our education US pushed down the American people and to push down the information that we have asked why they do it in China a little bit more discreet about it a lot. It's very cool to get this information from China that we have been out of the front right that might make a good documentary and I do a lot of work in other countries, particularly in poor countries.

In other areas. Child is going in the airport.

The hospital spent a lot of money on infrastructure. These poor countries and then they have the money like you said funding so much whole country just like colleges. People are afraid to speak out against what child is doing is really a disgrace. The world is watching what one was one of their closest wife is a design named teacher of the organization or individual brands like the Energizer current situation is called social in a world crowded with viewpoints of voice condition after a set of financial problems.

You have a break hopefully will will. They are developing really opening the people around the world. China and another conversation America wake up because this could happen right here the United States as well. You scared me to seal socialism and communism are really spreading, particularly on college campuses across the country today so we were talking about other coverage footage that you have for your film body courage should start about six years ago. Still your people shall be tortured and slave labor corruption. They spent six years all you three 299 for a long time and they change their operation technology and provided the right, the nation changed the people have in China. It hasn't changed ideology of the communist in any way long time ago when I look in America in I wanted to take a cultural war with the more publicly now more aware of the time in China is the best example I believe that we have all of learning where God and what happened when 22 schools the children to generation innovation of communist ideology children to adults now and how they changed how they have been brainwashed by one party that that I like to tell people that the Constitution of China beholden to the Constitution of the state to pay so very different to our foundation here in the US and because the DPP has not changed at all. The tiny communist party and it requires absolute national control strategy dialectic kind of money out because they are strictly the value push worship of materialism and money they got the faith of the society. They just push materialism and devotion to wealth and money and that destroys family life because people are putting money about their apparent making choices.

I think the divine comment ideology.conical specialists society, the book type on the part of each of the 10 in a name.Constitution society hitting towards coming to communism is a heaven paper. That's where they want to play God. They believe they are better than regular people and they believe they God and to me to any society is a fully explained that people who like that all and down and you have a positive communist world where in different way here, but we can be comfortable coming across and the destruction of faith and pushing material younger generation and are not clearly not. I really can't legally be must get back in the biblical worldview of people younger generation.

Every yeah so important tell you you have a whole generation of young people today hardly ever read the Bible don't go to church very often for huge numbers of kids over today go away to college and never go to church but even as a go to church. 90% of pastors Americans never like this. I don't think I've ever sermon on communism were going on in China that you're talking about today and we have got to educate our kids to understand these issues know what they believe one of a believer description will become a communist nation.

At some point down the road and other debts appear that you have okay if somebody wants to see your film. I'm assuming because the pressure years out of people find yourself exactly because of the pressure of China. We have the extremely difficult to believe on the platform they say China by phone messages.

I like you. Have fun encourage on on the guarantee. I got to the top of many big platforms and being rejected little behind their 10-year-old patient yet anyway. Training without talking person otherwise I'll website find encouragement. i.e. constrained by their yarn break platform: you can transfer pretrial bear much fun.

Encourage on that platform for that weekly organizations to understand like yourself to understand the need to talk about communism because the bike now so I think that when the organization helped make my young young man now I think that one more and I found myself I don't have to talk to my children going on around them in and help them find the strength and health; and that was really hot.

My son especially yet I'm sorry that legally found way to still fit in at school and regular public and not elated and thought how the change pod (we have to be engaged without children it really tough battle to fight for the children of the extra will really do. If the church wanted to show this so Israelite people working people just Bob showed church out for a home group home group on constrained by available for life premium like Netflix from your site yet from out from outside to be anyone trying to get it on the platform, what would you we have tried to 19 play going to do a lot look on Amazon, they have rejected the day had not doubt that started cracking down on a lot of goodies.

Other movies that are exciting, socialism, especially in America.

The pointing the high-level folks with great and a number of other media that we expected this movie because one foaming award that the storytelling is there it is working connection quality though they're not China shot in very surprising and I well deeply when trying to not deprive because they are extremely type KV 30 documentary on my pay.

I elected Doug, namely give up the I feel like you were not here to rapidly pay on the in the world right not about you not like I can get on the filmmaker yet, but ultimately I feel that the mission at hand and got what I was have to keep in mind-family income is not the only one in my I didn't want the Russian coming at target coming country with Frank.

I unlike it is not what I not know Toby really talk much, she said tightly had none that the building will guide a full only if you leave after we left Nokia would never have left everything they had money that had and I have copied wonderful lifestyle on date left because they could, but it really possible to take on communism never believed that they were not people of faith, a spiritual date. They decided which I bite on I think people of faith can learn from this even more is that even when it seems difficult for many, interlinking history, that no plan and we have to keep going for it and think possible Burling will default. No one ever imagined that he could hold it. And that gives me hope, no matter how bad I thing out society or China.

Anyway, I believe, because the control of we need the support of the filmmaker's a Christian today so go online and check out a go to find encourage movies cleaner person perspective. Learn more about impacting the culture for Jesus. Visit citizens for this is the Truth Network
