The year 2011 has been an intense and intresting and most important a busy time for me
here is the update what happend in my career at 2011
MARCH - APRIL 2011: THE RESISTANCE MOVIE
Beginning of the this year was a very happy time for me when the director Li Peng from Last Kung Fu Monk, re-hired me for his next film THE RESISTANCE, the filming took place at Ninghai Film Studio near Ningbo at Zhejiang Province, and also at exotic Tao Hua Dao Island and that island i remember most because after filming we got invited to eat dinner with the goverment of the island
In 1937, Japan began their invasion of the Republic of China by murdering over 300,000 civilians and disarmed soldiers in the capital of Nanking (Nanjing). Tens of thousands of women and girls are raped by soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army in what is known as the
Rape of Nanking. A treaty is reached between the Japan and China with the aid of the United States, but with the world at war, the genocideis unstoppable. An American reporter sent to report on the relations in China discovers the truth that the genocide continues and a Japanese plan of attack on US soil. When Japanese General Takeshi learns the reporter is about to blow both stories worldwide, the reporter's life is in the balances of justice.
In Beijing, there are rumors of a masked man systematically killing Japanese soldiers, working his way to the top officers. The General orders more barbaric killings until this masked avenger is either killed or surrenders himself. Will the reporter be able to get out alive to tell the story of the ongoing genocide taking place and warn the United States military of a planned attack on his own soil? Who is the masked avenger and will he surrender to the General, or will he rally the people of Beijing to rise with him and spit in the face of tyranny?
The ROLE: in this film i play the role of Commandant Schulz, sended from Germany to China to see the Japanese Controlling Nanking, while there he is invited to the Japanese General as a guest as partners of the Axel Pact.
