I went into the documentary for the politics. I was not expecting to be moved beyond words by the humanity of the... people on the screen. Stalin was reported to say that the death of one person was a tragedy and the death of a million was only statistics. This amazing documentary showed the tragedy behind those statistics, but it also showed unbelievable courage, persistence, and compassion. I was blindsided by the love and courage of Sun Yi had for his family, the guards who tortured him, his fellow countrymen who were also being persecuted by the government, and also with the courage and persistence of Julie Keith who didn't give up. To his family, if you're reading this, I hope you know that Sun Yi has touched the lives of so many people. His love for you shines through the movie and it will move me to action. This documentary made me realize how important freedom is, and why we must always stand up to brutal regimes that want to take them away. I cannot recommend it enough.read more
Tears in my eyes, thoughts in my mind. I think in this world, people who don’t know what is the real China are... Chinese people living in China; but those who know the most are still Chinese people and they want to run away from their motherland...bravo à Mr Sun, un esprit tellement courageux pour combattre d’avoir la liberté! Thanks for Mr Li the director brought us such a beautiful documentary. L’esprit est immortel. R.I.P.read more
Truly one of the most powerful documentaries I have ever watched. An eye-opener that will move your heart. One man's... tenacity in a nation ruled by communists. In a modern age where social media is used to show off being rich, famous, and beautiful..other people wish to have freedom and to stop persecution.read more

Letter from Masanjia is a deeply touching and heroic documentary - a monument of compassion and bravery!! Whenever you... need to activate your own courage, watch this film. It will open your heart and inspire you to take action despite the risks. I shed many tears - along with most in the theatre. Tears of admiration, sorrow and awe for the many layers of beauty and danger that we witnessed throughout this incredible journey. Wonderful use of animation (based on Sun Yi's skilled drawings) and risky undercover camera work - it's a miraculous film made despite great obstacles. Thank you Leon and your crew for your great love, dedication and artistry... This is truly an epic yet humble documentary - reflecting the epic yet humble nature of Sun Yi's life path.read more
