Nanfu Wang, the Chinese émigré who made “Hooligan Sparrow” and “I Am 
Another You”—two outstanding documentaries, has a new film that opens on 
Friday at the IFC Center in New York. Titled “One Child Nation”, it 
examines the draconian law that put a ceiling on births in China from 
1979–2015. She was born in this period but her parents also were allowed 
to have a second child, her younger brother, because they were rural 
villagers. Now that she has become a mother of a young son herself, she 
was inspired to visit China and interview her parents, their neighbors, 
and urban dwellers to see how the policy impacted them.
