The True Story Of How A Few Brave Souls Saved The Lives Of Thousands.
Directed by the Academy Award-winning team Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman (Twin Towers).
Nanking is a powerful reminder of the heartbreaknig cost of war and testament to the courage and conviction of those few determined to stand up against its horrors. Known as "the of Nanking", the Japanese army in 1937 invaded China's capital city, unleashing a horrific onslaught of murder and. Incredibly, a small group of Westerners who stayed behind saved thousands. The film touchingly captures this controversial, fast-fading chapter in history through interviews with Chinese survivors, archival footage and compelling readings of the Westerners' letters and diaries, shared by top-level actors such as Woody Harrelson, Stephen Dorff, Mariel Hemingway and more.
