Long Journey Into A Red Sunset
Part 2 China's Last EmperorStreaming Video - 2009
August 16, 1945: the end of World War II and the capture of Aisin-Gioro Puyi, Manchukuo's Japanese-controlled regent, by the Soviet Army. This program depicts what befell the former Chinese emperor during his captivity in Russia, his eventual extradition to Communist China, and his troubled life under Mao's regime. Through archival footage, detailed interviews, and excerpts from Puyi's autobiography, the film explores his testimony at an International Military Tribunal, his nine-year detention at a reeducation camp, his eventual pardon by China's Supreme Court, and his return to a quiet life in Beijing-darkened once more by the Cultural Revolution.
