1894: The Sino-Japanese War at Sea -- Screening and Conversation with the Filmmaker

Meet director Feng Xiaoning 冯小宁, one of China's most popular filmmakers, watch his most recent blockbuster 1894: The Sino-Japanese War at Sea, which was named Best Picture in 2012 by the China Movie Channel, and engage in a dialogue with the filmmaker himself, who will conduct a Q & A following the screening.

This epic war drama is set in the late 19th century and aims to reinterpret the historical facts of the War of Jiawu between China's Manchurian Qing Empire and Japan. In light of the recent
Sino-Japanese island dispute in the South China Sea, this film provides important historical context for current events.
