Children of the Stars is the remarkable true story of the Chinese Feng Jia Wei family.
They come to Beijing in a state of suicidal crisis as they cannot cope with their violent autistic son. He is also unable to speak or connect with them on any emotional level. His mother and father have brought him to the city to attend a special course at the Stars & Rain Institute of Autism. Their hope is to find a “miracle” cure. The film follows them as they grow to understand their son has a life-long condition whilst undergoing a deeply touching journey that reveals the incredible power and tenderness of parental love. It’s one of the most moving and inspirational documentaries you will see.
A film by Robin Aspey and Alexander Haase. For further information please refer to the films website: www.childrenofthestars-film.org
