Hi Guyz...

I'm looking for this documentary on either DVD or VHS. Can anyone point
me to a distributor??

In the Name of the Emperor (1995)

A documentary on the Rape of Nanjing which took place in 1937 when
Japanese Imperial troops invaded Nanjing (aka Nanking) then the capital
of China. Survivors of the massacre estimate that about 300,000 were
killed and 20,000 women were raped and killed in the first six weeks of
the Japanese occupation. Because of these rampant rapes and the alarming
spread of veneral diseases among the soldiers, the Japanese government
began the systematic operation of the now-infamous "comfort stations",
forcing women to serve in military brothels. By the end of the war, an
estimated 200,000 women, mostly Koreans, had been shipped as "war
supplies" to serve as "comfort women" in Japanese military stations all
across the occupied territories, from Manchuria to New Guinea.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
