Online Q&A with Robin Lung.
KUKAN, a landmark color film that revealed the atrocities of World War II China to audiences around the world, was the first ever American feature documentary to receive an Academy Award® in 1942. After World War II, the film became lost and no copy of it could be found. When filmmaker Robin Lung discovers a badly damaged film print of the “lost” KUKAN, she pieces together the inspirational tale of the two renegades behind the making of it -- Chinese American playwright Li Ling-Ai and cameraman Rey Scott.
