Kindness and Courage Displayed in ‘Shake the World’

By Nicholas Zifcak
The premiere of Shake the World was held October 13, 2006 at American University in Washington, D.C. This was the Shen Zhou Film Studio’s first release of a feature length film. The premiere also kicked off a university campus screening tour.

Shake the World tells the true story of the beginning of the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners after July 1999, through the eyes of hair stylist Ding Yan. As a female practitioner, Yan demonstrates the kindness and unbelievable courage that Falun Gong practitioners exhibited while enduring the brutal persecution of the Chinese Communist regime.
