John Pilger in, The Coming War on China, dares to ask why
“A gripping film … a strong corrective to our bland and complacent indifference”
– Peter Bradshow, The Guardian

Could Australia be drawn into a battle between two nuclear superpowers?
John Pilger’s acclaimed film, The Coming War on China, provides a gripping and timely wakeup call, exposing a massive military build-up on our doorstep.
“…Pilger characteristically explores the opposite angle, questioning the ultimate purpose of a whole phalanx of US bases from Australia through the Pacific to South Korea and Japan – all pointing their weaponry at China.” – Trevor Johnson, Radio Times

Now, with Donald Trump as US president, and increasing tension with China and North Korea, particularly involving nuclear weapons capabilities, Pilger’s film has a relevance that is impossible to ignore.
