Acclaimed journalist and human rights firebrand John Pilger stares down those who would defend America's ongoing military presence in the Pacific at significant cost to the indigenous population. His expose of the atrocities still being committed there is just part of this far-reaching documentary about the relationship between the US and China since World War II, in light of recent inflammatory statements made by President Trump. Here are stories apparently left untold by the mainstream news media – fake or otherwise.
"A persuasively partisan example of old-school investigative journalism."
"From Taiwan telephone tete-a-tete to pre-Christmas game of drones, President-elect @realDonaldTrump is inadvertently doing his darnedest to endow John Pilger's eye-opening polemic The Coming War on China with an air of chillingly urgent topicality. The Australian-born journalist's 60th film for U.K. broadcaster ITV is his fourth to be made with cinema exposure in mind — it screened to strong receptions in British theaters the day before its similarly well-received late-evening network bow."
