China's state-sponsored musical "Wings of Songs" defends government policies in Xinjiang province. The film tells the story of a Uighur, a Kazakh and a Han Chinese man who come together to fulfill their musical dream.
The movie showcases the life of Uighur Muslims without mentioning human-rights abuses in Xinjiang. More than a million Uighur Muslims have been detained in camps across Xinjiang province. China says they are vocational centers used to combat terrorism.
The Chinese government often uses the arts to spread its own version of events.
