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 sort of date I was a little bit about okay I do have an accent. Mac thinking of standing actually. I felt fortunate in a national do not formally.

My family had escaped Russia during the revolution the Russian Revolution, and because the people of faith I grandmother very devout and inability that they Have family together that will be 10. I think crowding hi family growing up such an important foundation for me but my family didn't really talk about their experiences in Russia or experiences because they had asked Kate 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 intend to unite and they destroyed people who wanted to have quite a copying business that is dependent on library cognitive faith in my family without us business on it as well as people of and they said I years after the dump I packed my family Story my dad side of my mom. I once once the great-grandparents that traveled by foot conflict in Russia down to Mongolia and down GHI not taking some time and sometimes double traveling at Russian on the back of the white Army in the cold accomplished debate on the LBJ by debate on each really lucky to provide basal body tree incorporate the people that were killed by communist. A etiology very absolutely terrifying times that it took five years heavenly to find freedom that they went to China and before the Communist Party fell a lot of passion and the Chechen snake on the community and that golden pot China and in both, I thought that had much heavier – and then the company started to take a civil war that China copied Heidi became the one-party state China and down unlike my father grew up at this morning and Ralph in China 14 years and down. He never liked to talk and said they skate to Australia. My dad was 14. The 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 gift inhabited by the colors that have nothing to eat and going upside yet my my family a tiny aggression hunger spoke English in China. You know, I spent every weekend and Chechen and my grandma and and it was wonderful. We had to rush to have that traditional Russian culture Russian student message by dancing in at school and the tenant is that of Russian community where you lived in Australia and Sydney thought the Lincoln school and I had my regular strength that my my religious community in my family, community, visit the possession of his medical letter of interest in the video well and quite a lot long.

It was a pain I can hear almost 11 and yet 11 1/2 and I can get the work tonight. I think I need by then I had learned about despite the fact that my my family did little to and they didn't feel I needed to tell if the evils of the danger expected that calculation on my face that 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 – there is Dick 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 can come in the theology and elected really got into my my route. I started to really evaluate my family into which I Think the crank and officially here in America. I really feel that that she left the Lupe caliphate of the granted independent and lucky that changing very encouraged by that. I like to say Mike my children. My parents never expected that a cranky, might need to flee again another country that is American about the protected freedom to live that read the look at the history of this because the KNX is is really scary what's happening on college campuses, leaving high school. They were American don't realize the story will order get this in a few minutes of what what your family has been through. They don't realize the threat that communism proposes not just on the freedom of the 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.

There is another line 39 years I've been helping relationship.

I'd like to invite Ray sharing his life. Enjoy history was made on June 1 American withdrawal from the son of a rabbi for this day, May 11, the TVD he was four years old when he emigrated from Russia to New York falling in love with America. He served in the US infantry three war one and wrote some of the country's most popular songs including Alexander's Ragtime band white Christmas.

God bless the royalties for which you gave to the Boy Scout who was in Irving Berlin 1945 received the Congressional Gold little Pres. Eisenhower.

God bless America land that I love stand beside her and guide the night with the light. What about Christian perspective. I guess the 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 countries around the world of threat is being placed in the United States today. 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 by not making so I have to make a choice between an does. He feels that the only thing Barry gave my hot child, but I tried at that time and when I left college I actually found a job and is very fortunate to reflect the copyrighted the height of the boys that I need to come-and my my boss recognized that he needed a pretty theft on that you have to have we here are not of the film will be good when you go see a movie you see so many names as executor of the other talk about. But what the difference is that what really is the producer. Sometimes if I wanted, all of the movie to oversee the entire project search.

I'm thinking about buying the book Christians only day I thank you and that I work with each viewpoint. Basically they have the most important introduce me anything. I hope all different creative people in the company and fight. Kate I don't know what she does typically keep everything together and making essentially more people to understand and think they cut their financial cookies for the ones that put in the money you will see that the producer and the name on the Gilpin and notoriety by Heather names his producers to write different back then they created people who have an input on how things are going to look and come across the thing up.

The final decision-making that is and then another type of which is more to go.

Project they, like a line produced that night I will write everything in motion by next month like clockwork.

The budget of overly detailed studies prayer for pretty theft aware the O3-102. Find someone I do work in all three or all of the old but that you think my experience at the opportunity to work in old ethics and you think of that in educational video gaming actually right-sided, but then when the company decided they wanted without making the 14-year-old I felt that was too much and I want my children to be doing that, but not different wealth out of 2020 and then eventually taken and an open media but I found film is the most popular diplomatic alignment and very very effective when you have people in a room together and in watching Navy and you see them laugh together.I got one very powerful and very irate encouraging, but I keep my needed skill building. So show your company's cultural will start at all sure you're here in the United States as a colleague to Marek, and I feel and down the excellent and the public and also pretty theft and and we began working together on her. Michael has the belief and then he encouraged me and you really shouldn't directing that is produced. I think you can direct and I probably started fighting courage which I direct and cognitive allow that to set a really good experience before we jump into the movie.

Just curious what this works for finger where did you how to name a business because the main and I really felt I had something in the name that would allow me to use think I'm going in a Leica and I wanted something to do with life and I just wanted to do that to remind myself that because that accompany creating products to help people look up to the divine and and to help us okay and and daily by counted it and that I and so I went about the different name for something and type of down and that how that and I could put two things the kind of the pipe remind me of Angelina thought that the it is important to me to remind myself in the company of both interesting so your company.

I think primarily make documentary films. What made you decide to go that route are all built godly Christian only deal with the communism issue or whatever work you so and because I documentary because all my work in all that fielding study and that all educational nonfiction" when I went in the film industry and I have written that fiction and actors and things like that on identical elderly but never starting out a mailing originally before Sunday and I know I can be nonfiction, and I know I can. That's right-sided enough capital like and and outgoing tape narrative scripted films ability. His work on all that the work is done have been focused on China and because that was in. I also witness that says can I was who I was in China. Me, that's another story that it is time so I got to see another world and I extolled the percentage of that was going on in China and now I'm here in red that that's a story that is not being held and so that's where we thought it and down to me that this may be hard to believe but really made a kind of entry for killing the Preakness of function for the file to open now that that Christians deftly come up on that. It barely started with gong practitioners. The people of the people of faith in China on that day, and I think I did that turn them in becoming their open and in China and we have evidence that any of the crime of the century and not talk about it felt like I would be doing to defend my I'm planning to basically do not is something that I know that it will come out and check out right-sided… Not restrictive government that is killing people harvesting the organs any state sanctioned and carried out to hospitals with registered medical doctors on old involved.

It is actually correct.

If you need a hot or ended up I noticed a lot of people that do know I have empathy for, but I want them to know where they came ready over the coming from you want a new hot hot you can go to China and you can get how doth it work out I will get you another one in the wake of many take and that they brag about 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 and got it in 2001, 1983 because not illegal in China.

Technically they are allowed to use the organ of imprisonment that the law from 1990 going China to allow so they cannot kill prisoners in prison to take on demand and they had their blood tested and they had it cut in the open with many, many people were being terribly fortunate because they were religious believers in China but they were receiving text for the health that will unduly related to help their open extremely sufficient to adopt his wife came forward and more doctors have come forward so penetrate difficult because complicit in it truly is a kind of story closes you're still going to fill 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.

No United States. God give you an opportunity and unique skill to make documentaries to let people know what's going all around the world and particularly, these countries before the commercial 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 care, shift gears to a movie you have now called urgent quote I want to encourage you to register to attend the 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 strength of family open and Kate Tellis of how that movie came about what happens in the document. This is a documentary that family story and he makes because when you make very light one right is you know what you want to say when you buy the people in any kind of follow that the line that you have any mind. Another way to do it anyway, my play, a long time but it.

Do you follow at a group of people or and documented that attorney and didn't know where and and the story had to be found in life. I think God provides around making honey cheap silver name. I take that as a blessing and and that I have to do the best I could help story about I met a family woman Ife Wang. She was thankful that she was 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 without a MacBook between the US and China and they story was already quite remarkable.

She's been through so much in China ATP, the Chinese Communist Party. Another group of people challenge when necessary. Interested in 1989, 1999 there was gone. Educated group because that's not very traditionally very traditional Chinese spiritual practice and how to back and she started following that life itself Wang that she'll holding a banner in Tiananmen Square and found not only in writing that it and they 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 communist ideology takes a great nation… I found to be story and I'm getting to the tallies of the story.

Good okay okay then, it was noted in the right proof that I trust my subjects.

I have to double check on the general and not undertaking have to be sure not rely on the known independent control and now needed a day so I always do and provide the document and I found what my hundred and they fight me on camera about their little and then head brother. He was still alive. She'd been sentenced to 13 years in prison for printing five. So remember that happened in China and we share so that we can learn from China waiting to go here so that the printing five and putting them in the prison culture terribly. And then she got out after 12 years and nine months, and he miracle until after eight and it story as well as terrible PTA each and he began recovering and he began trying to figure out what is wanted in America coming China so we have hearing story of new immigrants to America that will become understand, appreciate and love of a country that is based on Christian values. They show the patient that comes from the members happy undercover footage going on the movie where the family still trying to get back the body because I want to wanted one from kosher and so undercover footage never before because of the great great courage of his family so that essentially story and has a lot of water for extended drama old true and it all unfolded in front of an hundred hundred hours before the going to put it together – I took a couple be okay if you've made these other movies revealing what's happening within the Chinese government. 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 on China does true expert makes the objective facts and data suggest repeat that Chinese Communist Party line that is being denied out dated and not allow and cultural assets. Movie we took Angola fight how conflicts are in large audience and so the angle of why so few people can change such a horrific crime and so we were able to prove the crime is happening because our investigation with authority by debtor but also many pallet debate America as well. So we were able to present that nation that very line becoming one of the media colleges why why I like to make happening for a long time. The CPP controls the situation media platform to present our movies because they feel that maybe people cut off funding.

I had colleges safely without started to do a screening committee about Kovach K of being told by our ministration that we have too many Chinese student in college and we outside the movie that we may lose funding from the ACP to American college so I like to think that the kids and I we have so many tied with controlling our education US to push down the American people and to push down dead information that we have asked why they do it in China a little bit more discreet about it here a lot.

It's very difficult to get this information from China that we have been having a fun place to do it that might make a good documentary, and I do a lot of work in other countries, particularly poor countries.

In other areas. Child is going in the real airport hospital here 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 with colleges before afraid to speak out against what child is doing is really a disgrace. The world is what one was, and so forth. So what is a design named teacher of the organization or individual brands like the Energizer current situation is socially leading clothing and much more. 704984242 connect with the social in a world crowded with viewpoints of voices condition after a set of financial problems.

You indicated radio host and founder of the American foundation, Dr. Chris four amazing days in our nations capital with crystalline bargaining journey discovering the hidden and rediscover much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal look and how it evolved over the centuries learn about the government and the men who helped forge this new kind of Republic acknowledge the Creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of about the fate of the mounting father Christian principles governing America secure your spot to join this church. You have a break. Hopefully cultural films were they are developing really opening the people around the world. China had 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 are they still are people still being tortured and slave labor corruption. They spent six years all you history to take a look at that time 99 for a long time and change their operation technology extended provided the right to control the nation changed the people have get rich in China. It hadn't changed the ideology of the communist in any way long-term goal when I look in America wanting to take a cultural war and the more publicly now with more aware of the time in China is the best example I believe that we have all of learning where to go and see what happens when 22 schools to children to generation of communist ideology children to adults now and how they changed how they have been brainwashed by one party that there I like to tell people that the Constitution of China beholden to the Constitution of the so very different to our foundation here in US and the CCP had not changed at all. The tiny, and it requires absolute national control strategy dialectic kind of money possible out because they are strictly the value push worship of materialism and money they got the faith of the piety they just push materialism and devotion to wealth and money on fire that destroyed my life because people are putting money about their apparent making choices about the divine communist ideology.conical society, the book type on the part of the 10 in a name the Constitution society heading toward 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 become life and to me To any society is equally explained that people like that and they call and down and then you have a positive coming of 12 later in different way here, but we think the cultural coming and the destruction of faith and pushing material, especially the younger generation and are not clearly I really only believe we must get back.

I'm a biblical worldview. People younger generation. Yeah so important tell you you have a whole generation of young people today hardly ever read the Bible go to church very often for huge numbers of going to college and never go to church but even as a go to church. 90% of passerine Americans never addressed issues like this.

I don't think of ever comment on communism were driven 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. Descriptions become a communist nation. At some point down the road another debts appear that you have okay if somebody wants to see your film, assuming because the pressure of 10 years out of people find your film exactly because of the pressure of China.

We had the extremely fickle really on the platform they say China on messages.

I like fighting hurries on on this, but I can guarantee I dating off the top of many big platforms and be rejected. Little 10-year-old patient yet anyway training so that would be great talking person alive on out website find encouragement. i.e. constrained by their yarn break platform: you can perfect child there much time, courage on that platform test after the art organizations to understand like yourself to understand the needs to talk about communism taking it right now so I think that when the organization helped make my young now on think that one more and ideally found myself I took my children going on around them and help them find the strength and health; and that was really hot. My son is trying to not let me be found way to still fit in at school than regular public and not elated and thought how the change pod (each engaged children is very tough battle to fight the children of the express will really do.

If the church wanted to show this so is her licensing people working people just Bob showed church out for a home group home group on constrained by helical review for life and what type screen my Lake and scream at him like that put them from your site from outside extracts really were trying to get it on the platform like this. Would you we have tried to 19 play going to do a lot on Amazon that they had to get ready.

They had not doubt that started cracking down on a lot of these annuities that are exposing socialism, especially in America.

If they very disappointing have high-level folks with great and on and a number of other media that we expected-maybe once I'm in the Lord that the storytelling is there it were content production quality Colbert Motley County and China shut it on very surprising and I well be work I not surprised because they are extremely type KV 30 documentary on life taking elected to give up the I feel like you were not here to remember out of the chair on the in the world is not about you not like I can get on the filmmaker yet, but ultimately I feel that and that's what I would have to keep in mind the family income is not really going in right what the Russian coming at a target communicant of the country. I unlike it is not what I not know Toby really talk much better if we had known that the building will guide a full only a few days after we left the Nokia would never have left everything I had money that had and I had copied a wonderful lifestyle on date rest because they could, but it really possible to take on communism. They never believe the people of faith, a spiritual date. They decided idea which I died on the people of faith can learn from this even more is that even when it seems difficult for many, interlinking history, that no because you plan to keep going for it and think actually possible Browning will default. No one ever imagined medically old. And that gives me hope, no matter how bad I thing out the society will timeout anyway. I believe because the control folks we need to support indicative filmmaker's a Christian o go online and check out a go to find encouragement. These are all cleaner Christian perspective.
