PR Back to 1942 on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital May 14

Well Go USA



This tragic retelling of historical events is based on Zhenyun Liu's best selling novel Remembering 1942. The Henan province disaster, where three million people died of starvation, was a humanitarian crisis first sparked by drought, then compounded by a combination of windstorms, government corruption and a war with Japan. In the midst of the devastation, an American journalist (Adrien Brody) searches for answers, and slowly comes to understand that there may be a greater connection between these tragedies and his political theories than he once thought.
