“I am trying to educate the Americans because they know nothing about the truth about China. In the last 200 years, China has suffered in many ways from foreign colonialism and invasion,” the director told Xinhua.
Nebe said it makes him angry that some Americans have “so little understanding” about the history that China has suffered during the Japanese invasion.

Nebe said he wants his documentary serve as a reminder both for the Americans not to forget history and for the U.S. government to change its attitude.

The 40-minute documentary, one of Nebe’s 17 series of Mysterious China, tells how Japan started the war against China and shows photo and movie images about how Japanese soldiers killed Chinese, raped Chinese women and even used chemical weapons to kill innocent Chinese civilians.

The documentary presented photos, videos and documents to reveal the crimes committed by the notorious Japanese biological and chemical warfare force known as Unit 731 in China, in which many of the war criminals went unpunished after the war.

Nebe criticized the mainstream media in the United States for refusing to show his documentary and labeling his films as “propaganda.”

However, he is telling the truth through the film, he stressed.

Although the mainstream media refused to show his films, he will start showing his documentary through local public television stations. The documentary is estimated to reach 20 million Americans.

Lily Chen, former mayor of Monterey Park, the first Chinese American woman mayor in the United States, told the audience after the show that this documentary reminded her of her father, who was arrested in northern China’s Tianjin during the Anti-Japanese War because of his involvement in the secret fight against the Japanese invasion. She said although his father was rescued later but the whole family was terrified.

Chen said the documentary reminded her of the crimes Japan has committed and she has never forgotten that part of history. When her daughter married a Japanese American, the first thing she did was to bring him to China to visit the Memorial Hall for the Victims of the Nanjing Massacre.

“I do not want my daughter and son-in-law to forget what the Japanese did to the Chinese during the war,” said Chen.

Last year, Nebe produced another documentary “Diaoyu Islands, The Truth” to show that Diaoyu Islands belongs to China, the first documentary made by American film makers on the subject.

The documentary War Crimes under Rising Sun is produced by Monarex Hollywood Corporation. Enditem
