  • Based on historical events, "Red China" tells the story of American journalist Edgar Snow (Kenan Heppe), venturing into the Red Territory to get the scoop and experience of a lifetime: becoming the first foreigner not only to meet, but also to interview, Mao ZeDong (Wang Peng Kai) and other Chinese Red Army leaders. The film begins in war-torn, Kuomintang occupied Shanghai. As his curiosity regarding the Communist Party develops, Snow is invited by Soong Qing-Ling, political revolutionary and third wife of Sun Yat-sen, to embark into the Red Territory. Clandestinely passing through extremely hostile environments, this brave and curious journalist compiles interviews, observations, and experiences, that later became "Red Star Over China," the best-selling book that introduced The Chinese Communist Party to the rest of the world. It is said that this remarkable account of events was instrumental in shaping the development of modern-day Asia, and was one of the largest contributing factors toward President Nixon being invited, and willing, to open discussions toward the normalization of relations between the U.S. and China.
