The award-winning documentary All Static & Noise (2023) had its US premiere at the Double Exposure Investigative Film Festival in Washington DC this month, shedding light on the Uyghur genocide committed by China, CreateFann reports.

All Static & Noise documents the horrific persecution that Uyghurs are experiencing under the iron fist of Chinese communist rule: Imprisonment, torture, and separation from loved ones under state-sponsored Chinese persecution.

The film follows two main characters: Jewher Ilham, the daughter of imprisoned Uyghur scholar Ilham Tohti, and Abduweli Ayup, incarcerated and tortured for teaching children the Uyghur language. 

Director David Novack and Producer Janice Englehart have brought together professionals and volunteers from all over the world. The film uses animation, satellite photos, news footage, and phone videos. The documentary is based on hundreds of hours of interviews with exiled Uyghurs.
