China's Forgotten War: Behind the Documentary
If the standout documentary from our East Meets West season, 'WW2: China's Forgotten War' has left you wanting more then don't miss this companion interview with Rana Mitter, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China at the University of Oxford. Mitter, who presents the documentary and whose book provided the basis for it, talks in depth about the documentary's production, and in particular its use of animation to dramatise key moments of the story. He expands on the historical context and explains why the conflict between Japan and China in 1937 had such a decisive impact on the events of the Second World War.
