Storyline

The unspeakable Chinese practice of organ harvesting is exposed in this Peabody Award winning documentary. In the early 2000s doctors around the world began to notice large numbers of their patients flying to China for organ transplants. An organ was typically ready within a week. The availability and number of organs was baffling, until horrific stories began to leak out. It was rumoured that hospitals were harvesting live prisoners for their organs but could this actually be true? Human Harvest takes you through the international investigation led by Nobel Peace prize nominees that is shocking the world.

A superbly well-spent hour
11 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect, I just heard this was a must-see, so when the people on screen started telling their stories to paint the whole picture, my jaw just kept dropping further down and my eyes popped open! They must be so frustrated that the international community isn't doing more about this absolutely genocidal atrocity.

Funny, I didn't find it a heavy film even though it dealt with such a topic. A lot of docs leave you feeling in despair. Not this one. Makes it a good one to share. The filmmaker seemed to know how hard the facts would hit people and balanced the experience really well.

An amazing movie period.
