Chinese Director Fined for 3 Kids

Zhang Yimou, the popular director of movies including Hero and House of Flying Daggers, has been fined $1 million for violating China’s one-child policy. The fine was tabulated based on Zhang and his wife’s income, leaving them 30 days to pay it. Zhang is also known for directing the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony. The policy, which was introduced in the 1970’s, will be relaxed for for couples that include parents who were an only child.
