Short from award-winning director about a transgender woman proves again how internet-released films are by-passing China's censors and reaching huge audiences

Short film My Way, about a mainland Chinese transgender woman having surgery in Hong Kong, was released a week ago (12 April) and already has 2 million views on Youku (China's YouTube).

The film by critically acclaimed director Ann Hui is the latest example of professional directors by-passing the censorship of China's State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) to reach huge audiences online.
