10 Conditions of Love

The 10 Conditions of Love

(53 minutes) Australia/China

Saturday, 10/23, 4:20pm (Session II)

Director: Jeff Daniels
Producers: John Lewis, Dennis Smith, Jeff Daniels


The 10 Conditions of Love is a love story—of a woman, a man, a family, a people and a homeland. It is the story of Rebiya Kadeer, a woman accused of inciting terrorism within China's borders. It is also the story of the 'other Tibet,' the country its Muslim people call East Turkestan, but which the Chinese call Xinjiang Province. Exiled in the US, Rebiya Kadeer is fighting for the human rights of her people, the Uyghur, China's oppressed Muslim minority. But Rebiya Kadeer's campaign condemns her sons to ongoing solitary confinement in a Chinese prison. Having done six years solitary herself, she understands the appalling consequences for them—but she will not relent.
