Movie: Eternal Fifty Minutes
(Minghui.org) Eternal Fifty Minutes is the second part of the epic feature film Coming for You produced by New Realm Studios in Canada. The film tells the story of a group of Falun Gong practitioners intercepting TV signals in Changchun and broadcasting uncensored information about Falun Gong for about 50 minutes in 2002. The film also covers the misinformation fabricated against Falun Gong practitioners by the CCP in response to the event.
The Communist Party used its complete control of media in China to propagate false information to incite public hatred against Falun Gong in order to bolster support for the Party’s violent campaign to eradicate the group. Countless people who peacefully petitioned the government to stop the persecution were arrested and tortured.
In an environment where all legal channels of appeal were blocked, in Spring 2002, a group of Falun Gong practitioners installed cable television broadcasting equipment in a residential area of Changchun City, Jilin Province. They broadcast a program about Falun Gong on eight TV channels for about 50 minutes, reaching more than 100,000 viewers. People phoned each other to turn on the TV. As word of the broadcasts spread, more and more people tuned in.
Unable to identify the source of the transmissions, CCP officials cut off the power supply and darkened the streets. In some areas, people went outside and celebrated as they thought Falun Gong was no longer being persecuted. Several practitioners went out and began distributing informational materials about Falun Gong.
Neighbors, children, strangers, and even community officials approached practitioners. Everyone talked about the event, and several people congratulated practitioners. Some asked, “Falun Gong is truly outstanding! How did you do it?”
