'Morning Sun' Documents China's Cultural Revolution

Filmmaker Carma Hinton is an American who grew up in China. Her new documentary on the Cultural Revolution, Morning Sun, includes footage of victims and perpetrators of that period, when Communist youth, inspired and encouraged by Mao Zedong, rebelled against their parents and teachers, and workers rebelled against their bosses. NPR's Steve Inskeep speaks with Hinton.
