731: Two Versions of Hell

  • 27'
  • China
  • 2006
James T. Hong twice tells the story of Unit 731, a Japanese laboratory in the Chinese town of Harbin where biological weapons were developed during the Japanese occupation. The structure and cutting however make it clear that every story has more than one side. A painstaking study of truth and political manipulation.
