A Jewish Girl in Shanghai  (Movie / Film)

A Kessler Film Event

A Jewish Girl in Shanghai
Written by Wu Lin, based on his graphic novel of the same title

85 minutes

A Jewish Girl in Shanghai is the first Chinese animated film to directly address the Holocaust. The film is set in Shanghai's Little Vienna - the neighborhood where around 30,000 Jewish refugees found shelter during WWII. The story centers around the friendship between Rina, a European Jewish schoolgirl and A-Gen, a Chinese pancake-seller, who teach each other about their distant worlds as Shanghai struggles beneath its own cruelly portrayed Japanese occupation.
