Ma Jian’s latest novel The Dark Road, which explores the terrible effects of the One Child Policy on Chinese women, is the latest in a string of his works banned in Mainland China since 1987 due to his criticisms of the Chinese government.  Returning to the HKILF stage after his 2006 appearance, the Chinese dissident author, to be interviewed by translator and publisher Harvey Thomlinson, speaks up on the policy that has deep social, economic and medical impacts on the country.
