Website: alleyesandears.org

A timely exploration into the complex links between the U.S. and China, All Eyes and Ears evokes the personal and the international with its accent on diplomacy, activism and individual experience. Interspersed with remarks from journalists and experts, the film interweaves the stories of U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, his adopted Chinese daughter, Gracie Mei, and blind legal advocate Chen Guangcheng as they find purpose, identity and resolve amid the two nations’ evolving relationship. The film follows Huntsman and his family during his tenure as ambassador. As he contends with achieving diplomatic goals, teenager Gracie gathers a better understanding of her own cross-cultural identity. And Chen Guangcheng’s journey, from being under house arrest to his highly publicized asylum at the U.S. Embassy, highlights the activist’s thoughts on China’s ambitions as an emergent world power. All Eyes and Ears illuminates the delicate, intersecting layers of history, ideology and politics at play behind current diplomatic maneuvers.
