All About My Sisters
After giving birth to two daughters, Qiong’s parents were desperate for a boy. When they learned that they were pregnant with a third daughter, the couple embarked on a path that would affect their family for generations to come. Filming for more than seven years, Ms. Wang courageously investigates her family’s shocking history. Intimate, powerful interviews with her parents and siblings and a keen eye for detail create a never-before-seen view of the one-child policy at its peak and the echoes that still haunt a family and their community today.

“A film bristling with the kind of familial rancor that usually only emerges behind closed doors.” — New York Times
“Searingly intimate portrait of extended family, from farm to town, is a devastating look at how China’s decades-long “One Child Policy” has led to three-generations of PTSD.” — Maven’s Fest
