In the wake of Aftershock, China’s top blockbuster filmmaker Feng Xiaogang has come up with another powerful tale of survival and humanity set against the backdrop of a devastating disaster! Adapted from the novel Remembering 1942 by its author Liu Zhenyun (who also wrote the book Feng’s 2003 film Cell Phone is based on), Back to 1942 reveals the tragic truth of a dark chapter in Chinese history where millions died in a famine. In this epic period drama, the director takes a compelling and comprehensive look at the disaster from various perspectives, for which he enlists a cast of acclaimed actors including Zhang Guoli, Chen Daoming, Xu Fan, Zhang Hanyu, Li Xuejian, as well as Academy Awards winners Tim Robbins and Adrien Brody.

Feng’s harrowing and hard-hitting depiction of this wound of the nation takes place in 1942. That year, the Henan Province was struck by a serious drought and a plague of locusts. The resulting famine caused the death of three million people, with some refugees resorting to cannibalism in desperation. The film follows the family of village landlord Master Fan (Zhang Guoli), who gets robbed by starving refugees and, like millions others, is forced to flee from their homeland for a chance of survival. Among this mass exodus is preacher An Ximan (Zhang Hanyu), who witnesses the horrors firsthand and that leads him to question his faith. Meanwhile, struggling to resist the Japanese military invasion, the Kuomingtang government fails to offer any relief to the war-ravaged, famine-stricken people, and not until the intervention of American correspondent Theodore White (Adrien Brody) does the world learn of this disaster….
