The International & European Premiere of Hard To Believe was successfully held at the Film Casino in Vienna, Austria. Ethan Gutmann, an investigative journalist and China analyst who is featured in Hard To Believe, and Ms. Anastasia Lin, Miss World Canada, 2015 and a human right advocate, attended the VIP reception of the event and the post-screening Q&A session.
Many event attendees were moved and shocked by the film and the presented evidence on forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China. The true story shared by Dr. Envert Tohti in the film about his own involvement in removing organs from a living prisoner was especially shocking to the audience and caught a lot of attention.
There was a lively panel discussion after the screening, and in addition to Ethan and Ms. Anastasia, Dr. Katja Hausmann, the representative of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) also joined the discussion and shared her opinion on this issue in China.
