Overview

One of the most amazing and captivating survival tales of WWII, the overwhelmingly acclaimed Shanghai Ghetto has been declared a "don’t miss documentary...powerful...eye-opening." Stirringly narrated by Academy Award winner Martin Landau (Ed Wood, The Majestic), Shangai Ghetto recalls the strange-but-true story of thousands of European Jews who were shut out of country after country while trying to escape Nazi persecution in the late 1930s. Left without options or entrance visas, a beacon of hope materialized for them on the other side of the world and in the unlikeliest of places, Japanese-controlled Shanghai. Fleeing for their lives, these Jewish refugees journeyed to form a settlement in the exotic city, penniless and unprepared for their new life in the Far East.
 
At the turn of the new millennium, filmmakers Dana Janklowicz-Mann and Amire Mann boldly snuck into China with two survivors and a digital camera to shoot at the site of the original Shanghai ghetto, unchanged since WWII. Their never-before-seen recordings--along with interviews of survivors and historians, rare letters, stock footage, still photos and an orignal score by Sujin Nam and Chinese Erhu performer Karen Han (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon )--depict an incredibly moving portrayal of a rich cultural life, bravely constructed under enormous hardship.
