TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Hollywood


A special screening of upcoming drama “A Stranger in Shanghai” will be held by NHK WORLD-JAPAN at JAPAN CUTS HOLLYWOOD, a 3-day Japanese film festival in Hollywood, CA.




The new drama “A Stranger in Shanghai” depicts Shanghai as a city in the midst of major turmoil during the Chinese revolution of nearly 100 years ago. It recounts the true story of Ryunosuke Akutagawa, a highly regarded Japanese writer and intellectual who travelled to Shanghai as a newspaper correspondent. While there he witnessed the suffering of its citizens, who were under foreign concessions of western European countries and Japan. As he covered the revolution in Shanghai, Akutagawa forged relationships with the working men, and women in the brothels, living in Shanghai.

The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the film’s Director Taku Kato and Executive Producer Natsuko Katsuta.

The program will broadcast internationally as a two-part drama through NHK WORLD-JAPAN on December 27 and 28, 2019.
