When Chinese state TV blames his faith for a fiery public suicide, Chen Ruichang is detained in a Clockwork Orange-style brainwashing facility and forced to accept the government’s account. But Chen, a former insider of the state TV himself, believes it was a government plot. A CNN reporter smuggled out footage of the event that day but was muzzled by Beijing. Now her eyewitness testimony helps untangle an intricate conspiracy, as Chinese authorities pressure the filmmaker’s family and business associates. Ask No Questions shows the deadly power of media under authoritarian control. It also shows the remarkable power of an individual who refuses to compromise the truth.

“A tantalizing, real-life thriller that couldn’t be more surreal if it were fiction.”
– Film Threat

“Darkness must be exposed, and Ask No Questions can play a valuable role.”
– Chinese artist-activist Ai Weiwei

“Particularly relevant now…a cautionary tale about how hard it can be to come to the truth.”
– SF Weekly
