(Minghui.org) On April 11, 2011, Between Life and Death (English), a documentary produced by New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV), won a merit award in the Hugo Television Award Investigative Reporting/News Documentary category at the 47th Chicago International Film Festival.

For 47 years, the Hugo Television Awards have honored the most innovative and outstanding members of the television community. The awards include the Golden HUGO Award, the Silver HUGO, as well as Gold, Silver, and Certificate of Merit for each category.

Out of the numerous submissions, this year the jury awarded Between Life and Death, a news documentary from New Tang Dynasty Television, the Certificate of Merit. It was one of three award winners in the Investigative Reporting/News Documentary category.

The film documents the surge of organ transplants in China, beginning about 10 years ago and boasting a super short waiting period for wealthy patients to have their organs and tissue matched. The investigation focused on the undisclosed origin of the organs. By analyzing the Chinese government’s officially published numbers and media reported cases; interviewing many investigators, professionals, and witnesses; and citing the testimony of a principal criminal apprehended by Israeli police, the film documented how the Chinese Communist Regime systematically built up a large organ and tissue database of Falun Gong practitioners and other political dissidents and then harvested their organs while they were still alive to sell to patients for huge monetary gain.
