Dissent as a Way of Life: Freedom, Jail, Love

Jinyan Zeng, the 2017 Oak Fellow at Colby College, is a human rights activist, scholar and filmmaker from China. Her first film was produced when she was under house arrest in Beijing. Her most recent film, “We the Workers,” which documents the party-state’s repression of labor organizers, premiered earlier this year at the Rotterdam Film Festival. Dr. Zeng will talk about her life and work, using excerpts from her films.
