The Children of Huangshi recalls Nanjing Massacre
Adjust font size:

A set of photos from the upcoming war tragedy film, "The Children of Huangshi", was released to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre on December 13, the website reported on Tuesday.

A photo released on Tuesday, December 11, 2007 shows Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Myers playing the British journalist in the film, "The Children of Huangshi".

The epic film recalls the true story of a young British journalist who saved a group of orphaned children with the help of an Australian nurse during the Japanese invasion of China in 1937. Over a six-week-long bloody period, the Japanese aggressors slaughtered over 300,000 Chinese civilians.

In order to re-create the reality of the Nanjing Massacre, the film spent five million dollars on rebuilding scenes of Nanjing from 1937 according to thousands of photos and films from the time period.

Roger Spottiswoode, the director of the film, hopes "The Children of Huangshi" can remind people, particularly Japanese, to remember history and build good neighborly ties with other nations.

The film's stellar cast includes Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Myers, Veteran Hong Kong actor Chow Yun-Fat and Malaysian-Chinese star Michelle Yeoh.
