In this feature documentary, Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Shuibo Wang (Sunrise Over Tiananmen Square) aims his camera at the astonishing story of 21 American soldiers who opted to stay in China after the Korean War ended in 1954. Back home in the United States, McCarthyism was at its height and many Americans believed these men were brainwashed by Chinese communists. But what really happened? Using never-before-seen footage from the Chinese camps and interviews with former PoWs and their families, They Chose China tells the fascinating stories of these forgotten American dissidents.

  • Engrossing and very moving. I had read a book, 22 Stayed by Virginia Pasley, written shortly after their decision to stay in China, and looked online to see what had become of them later. This film was a wonderful discovery and the story it tells is a fascinating contrast to the portrait painted of them by Ms. Pasley (even though I think she was probably quite progressive for that period).

    A fascinating documentary about a little known group of men who did what for most Americans at the time was unthinkable: defection to China. I highly recommend this film. The explorations of the men that are profiled are interesting because, among other things, we are given perspectives from family members as well.
