Review by Young Tibetan Leader Urgyen Badheytsang

I highly recommend this documentary because if there is anything sacred and worth saving in the western world, it might be our education and freedom of thought.

‘In the Name of Confucius’ is a critically important documentary that exposes the very corrupt and devious tactics used by China’s Confucius Institutes, portrayed brilliantly through dramatization by the very talented Miss Canada, Anastasia Lin. This documentary follows closely the controversy behind a Toronto School Board’s subtle decision to make an enormous deal with China’s State Council of Information. The fact that a chair of an entire board resigned immediately after this issue started getting air-time says so much about the guilt of the parties involved.

I highly recommend this documentary because if there is anything sacred and worth saving in the western world, it might be our education and freedom of thought. Without academic freedom and integrity, the path for the future citizens of democratic countries remains dark. As a Tibetan student, I was always confident that my story and my cause can be protected in Canada, but today, that confidence has turned into uncertainty. If you support academic freedom and integrity, and a world led by bright young minds free of totalitarian propaganda, you should watch this film, and take action to stop China’s Confucius Institutes.
