The Coming War on China

From journalist provocateur John Pilger comes a compelling political documentary that highlights the growing likelihood of a second cold war, this time between the United States and China. 


A nuclear war between the United States and China is not only imaginable but a current ‘contingency’, says the Pentagon.  John Pilger’s 60th film and first since 2013’s Utopia is his most urgent work to date and is both a warning and an inspiring story of resistance.  The Coming War on China, filmed over two years across five potential flashpoints in Asia and the Pacific, reveals the build-up to war on more than 400 US military bases that encircle China in a ‘perfect noose’.

Using rare archive and remarkable interviews with witnesses, Pilger’s film discloses America’s secret history in the region – the destruction wrought by the equivalent of one Hiroshima every day for 12 years, and the top secret ‘Project 4.1’ that made guinea pigs of the population of the Marshall Islands.  In key interviews from Pentagon war planners to members of China’s confident new political class - who rarely feature in Western reports, Pilger’s film challenges the notion and propaganda of China as a new ‘enemy’.

"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." - Hollywood Reporter
