Nanking documents the massacres and atrocities that Imperial Japan’s army committed in China’s capital city during the winter of 1937-38—an event that roils Sino-Japanese relations to this day. Amidst widespread killings, rapes, looting, and arson, a small group of Westerners established a safety zone that saved tens of thousands of Chinese. The New York Times calls Nanking "a swift, incisive documentary about one of the lesser-known horrors of the 20th century," and praises it as "an upsetting, riveting and innovative chronicle." Nanking has won awards at the Sundance, Hong Kong, and Heartland Film Festivals.
