Upcoming Events

Hard to Believe Screening

Join us at our free, public screening of the award-winning documentary film, Hard to Believe, at AMS Student Nest. Refreshments will be provided.

Film Synopsis
IT’S HAPPENED BEFORE: Governments killing their own citizens for their political or spiritual beliefs. But it’s never happened like this.

Winner of 13 film awards, “Hard to Believe” is a serious investigation into one of the most horrifying medical crimes of our time: forced live organ harvesting from hundreds of thousands of prisoners of conscience in China, and the response—or lack of it—around the world.

From an author’s 7-year investigation to a doctor’s confession; the determination of the son of a Holocaust survivor, to the persistence of a culturally-challenged victim community, “Hard To Believe” explores the mystery of why so few people seem to be paying attention to a crime so horrific it goes beyond belief.

Find out how doctors became murderers and why we turned a blind eye.
