This documentary about censorship of the internet and news media in China follows two contrasting bloggers. Where the young Zola uses social media and news reporting as a means of self-promotion and fame, the older Tiger Temple interacts with people on a more personal level, dedicated to bringing justice to the poor.
The two opposing bloggers’ travels through China are brilliantly juxtaposed and their constant usage of phones, digital cameras and blogs creates a unique portrait of newsgathering in China in the 21st century. As “citizen reporters” make authorities wary, they face the danger of political persecution. We follow them as they navigate through China’s evolving censorship regulations while simultaneously committing to their social responsibilities and personal agendas.
Having so far received both praise and prizes at its previous screenings, Stephen Maing’s »High Tech, Low Life« is a captivating and highly engaging documentary of today.
