Submitted by wsh on December 2, 2006 - 12:39am.

In this page, I recorded a series of milestones during promoting Ted Leonsis' documentary movie --- "Nanking", a recently produced documentary movie on Nanjing Massacre. This film is based on Iris Chang's famous book, Rape of Nanking, and directed by famous academic awards winner, Bill Guttentag.


Milestones

* May 4, 2007: Nanking massacre documentary shocks New York audience (May 4, 2007). "Our film, Nanking, drew strong audience reactions in its first two days at the Tribeca Film Festival. It is really an honor to meet so many Chinese Americans at the theater and have them feel so connected to the story line. Many of them hug me and tell me of their own personal connections to Nanking." (from Ted's Take)
