City Of Life And Death (Nanjing! Nanjing!)

2 Jun 20106 Jun 2010

A remarkable and relentless film that follows the fall of Nanjing, China’s capital in the ‘30s, to the Japanese Imperial Army. Director Lu Chuan captures ‘the rape of Nanjing’ by staying close to a small group of characters through whose eyes we see the shocking events unfold. One of the films of the year so far.

Released by High Fliers.
