not free

A good friend and documentary filmmaker Hao Wu has been in detention in China for over a month now. No one knows exactly why he was detained, though he was working on a documentary about underground churches in the PRC. No one knows where he's being detained, though he was last seen in Beijing. No one knows how long he will be detained. The situation is scary, infuriating and must be excruciating for his family. There has been sporadic contact between Hao and his family. His family originally requested that the story be kept quiet in hopes for an early release. Now, after a month of waiting, with little or no information and no progress in his case, a press campaign has begun. details here
