Morning Sun (simplified Chinese: ???????; pinyin: B? Ji? Di?n Zh?ng de Tàiyáng) is a 2003 documentary film by Carma Hinton about the Cultural Revolution in China.
The film uses archival and propaganda footage from the era as well as interviews with Red Guard participants and victims to explore the events and effects of the Cultural Revolution.
In the United States, the film garnered largely positive reviews. It won the American Historical Association John E. O'Connor Film Award in 2004 and was nominated or a finalist in regards to a handful of other awards and film festivals. In China, the film is almost certainly banned as public discussion of the Cultural Revolution is fiercely taboo, and state censors are notoriously strict with political and foreign-made films.
