Former high-ranking Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials, alongside
an army colonel, a judge, a diplomat, a propaganda official, a secret agent,
and a CCP role-model student, lift the veil on the Marxist culture that has
molded the thoughts and actions of Chinese people for over seventy years. It is
this culture that created China’s “Walking Dead.”
Filmmaker and author, Kay Rubacek, weaves
together interviews with these Chinese communist insiders with extensive
research, and a sense of humor, into a rich narrative that takes you into a
strange and dangerous world built on a foundation of lies, money-lust, and zero
moral boundaries.
