IN THE NAME OF CONFUCIUS SYNOPSIS

"In the Name of Confucius" is a documentary exposé of the Chinese government’s multi-billion dollar Confucius Institute (CI) program and the growing global controversies surrounding it.
-
Featuring the exclusive personal story of a former CI teacher, Sonia Zhao, whose defection and complaint let to the first closure of a CI on a North American campus, and the unprecedented outcry against Canada’s largest school board, the TDSB, over its plan to open the world’s largest CI, the film examines the risks that the Confucius Institutes could pose to our society—a loss of academic integrity, violations to human rights codes, foreign influence, and even potential infringements on national security.
-
After its completion in 2016, In the Name of Confucius has won a number of international awards and has been screened in 6 countries.
