free screening of iris chang: the rape of nanking

With all the recent talk remembering the Nanking massacre, here's a film screening folks in the Bay Area might be interested in attending this weekend... San Jose Councilmember Kansen Chu is hosting a screening of Iris Chang: The Rape of Nanking, a feature-length docu-drama about the life and work of historian Iris Chang, author of The Rape of Nanking, considered one of the definitive texts on the massacre. The film, which was produced in Canada and stars Olivia Cheng, tells the story of Nanking through the eyes of Iris Chang, and retraces her journey to bring the story of the massacre to light. The screening is this Sunday, December 16, 1:00pm-3:00pm at The San Jose Improv, 62 South 2nd Street, San Jose, CA 95113. Admission is free but seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
