In 1957 Robert Carl Cohen was studying Social Psychology in Paris when, visiting Moscow, he was assigned by NBC-TV's Irving R. Levine to film a group of young Americans touring China in defiance of the US State Dept's then-existing travel ban. Arriving in Beijing after a 9-day 6,000-mile trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway, his uncensored films were shipped to New York. Documenting such forbidden subjects as bridges, aircraft, tanks, & the "brain washing" of political prisoners, his reports were featured on the TODAY SHOW, CHET HUNTLEY NEWS, & THE SPECIAL OF THE WEEK. Highlights of this historical film include: Beijing, Guandong, Shanghai, the Great Wall, Yangtze River, Nanking University, Changchung Auto Plant, Slum & Sampan dwellers, Modern Hospitals & Ancient Acupuncture, Coop Farms, Chairman Mao Tze Tung, Premier Chou En-Lai, & former Cal-Tech & MIT rocket expert Dr. Chen Tzu-Fen, concluding with the million marcher National Day Parade before the Forbidden City & its giant fireworks finale. Today, with foreign tourists & business people able to visit a China rapidly filling with modern factories & cities, INSIDE RED CHINA provides a rare & valuable insight into that vast nation's tumultuous past.
