Nanking Even in the Darkest Times, There is Light
Directed by Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman, 2007, 89 minutes, DVD
This film draws on eyewitness accounts and documentary footage to tell the story of the Japanese occupation of Nanjing in 1937. It reveals not only how traumatic that invasion was for Chinese people, but also points to why the Nanjing Massacre has remained a focal point in the memory of war across East Asia. The screening will be followed by comments and discussion session with the audience.
