Restoring The Light: Bringing Health Care To Rural China

Restoring the Light was first brought to our attention at the 2011 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival with its story about Dr. Zhang, a doctor fighting to bring transformative health care to the rural areas of northwest China. The documentary follows Zhang and two families with disabled children: a young woman who copes with a bone infection that keeps her from working as a laborer and dreams of attending college and a young boy who was blinded due to an untreated illness.  Their remote locations have kept them from receiving quality (or any) medical care, which threatens to leave their community behind amidst the massive economic and social changes that China has been facing over the recent years.

It’s a touching story that needs to be addressed, but the film needs a little more help to finance the post production to finish!

This film has been a project three years in the making, and we have finally locked picture. However, we must raise funds for the quality original music score the film deserves, as well as complete a sound mix, high definition tape masters and fulfill marketing and delivery costs.

If you’d like to help, please donate to the Restoring The Light Indiegogo campaign.

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
