His first film, "Beijing or Bust", documents the trials and tribulations of six American born Chinese who chose to return to Beijing and the cultural adaptation they faced. The film was shown in the 6th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival in 2005.
Wu was detained by the Chinese government on February 22, 2006 for almost five months. According to the Global Voices initiative at the Harvard Berkman Center for Internet and Society, Hao had been producing a documentary on "underground" Christian Chinese house churches in China when he was detained by authorities in the People's Republic of China.
Following his detention, Global Voices co-founder Ethan Zuckerman started a new blog to monitor the status of Hao's detention, which was covered widely by blogs and news outlets around the world. Hao was released on July 11, 2006.
