This is what happen’s in China

Subject: RE: The Tiger Mafia selected at Outdocs

Dear Karl, dear Laurin,

The festival just contacted me about the censorship : 

As know, all the films will be examined by censorship before officially enter our festival this year. And we are sorry to inform you that The Tiger Mafia did not pass the censorship. The previous pre-confirmation will be deemed invalid. 

Sorry again for the inconvenience and hope you can understand. 

This means you will not have to do the 3 minute video anymore and the screening will not happen. I’m really sorry about it.

Best wishes,

Kilian

Objet : RE: The Tiger Mafia selected at Outdocs

Dear Kilian,

Just came back from a trip to the US.  This below is an interesting development. Hope they have watched it and are aware of the implication of corruption and poor quality governance in places like Laos Vietnam and China as well.  They might be in for some push back.  Have had an experience before where an NGO was going to show one film at a press conference in Beijing and they flew me in for it. The day before the NGO leadership was called into the ministry and told that the film could not be shown, that it was a national security issue and  there would be national security officials in the audience  to ensure that they followed orders.  I then talked about it rather than showing it.

Cheers

Karl

Dear Karl and Laurin,

I hope you are doing well ! 

I’m very glad to annouce you the selection of The Tiger Mafia at The International Outdoor Documentary Film Festival of China (OUTDOCS) ! 

The festival is in November 2021 and it will be the Asian Premier. 

Because of covid you can’t travel to China, the festival would like to show a 3 minute video were you can express your expectations and wishes for OUTDOCS and share your films & adventure with the audience in China. If you are interested in doing this video, they would need it before November 1st.

Best wishes,

Kilian 😊
