China Bans Filmmakers Who "Hurt National Dignity"

Ban for those who "harm the Chinese people's feelings"

A new law passed by the National People's Congress Standing Committee on Monday will prohibit the production of domestic films by any persons or companies who express a critical opinion toward the country.

According to the law, Chinese citizens or companies are prohibited from co-producing films with overseas organizations or individuals engaged in activities that damage China's national dignity, honor and interests, sabotage the social stability, and harm the Chinese people’s feelings.

Any person involved in the preceding activities will be banned from film production in China.

Chinese films are already subject to a number of regulations that prohibits the depiction of smoking and time travel, while state television and internet videos are banned from depicting "uncommon sexual relationships and sexual behaviors" such as gay dating.
