Based on a true story, John Rabe tells the story of a German businessman who rescued more than 200,000 civilians during the so-called “Nanking Massacre” in China. Drawing from John Rabe’s 1937 diaries as source material, Academy Award Winner Florian Gallenberger has crafted a portrait of a man revered as a saint in China to this day and yet never rewarded for his courage during his lifetime.
An Official Selection at the Berlin Film Festival; Winner of 4 Golden Lolas, Germany’s top film prize, for Best Film, Best Actor, Best Costume and Best Production Design.
The dramatic score was composed by Laurent Petitgirard and Annette Focks.
