Morning Sun (Chinese: 八九点钟的太阳; pinyin: Bā Jiǔ Diǎn Zhōng de Tàiyáng) is a 2003 documentary film by Carma Hinton about the Cultural Revolution in China.

The film uses archival and propaganda footage from the era as well as interviews with Red Guard participants and victims to explore the events and effects of the Cultural Revolution.

In the United States, the film garnered largely positive reviews.[1][2] It won the American Historical Association John E. O'Connor Film Award in 2004 and was nominated or a finalist in regards to a handful of other awards and film festivals.[3]

In South Korea, the film was broadcast by EBS in 2000. However, due to pressure from the Chinese Government, it was only broadcast once, at 4:30 A.M.[citation needed]
