The last of our long-lost Prodigal Sons, cine-essayist James Hong has marched into ideological battles in China, Taiwan, Germany, and recently, the Netherlands. Despite the distances, Mr. Hong unceasingly churns out his idiosyncratic amalgam of history, ethos, sarcasm, and rant, in an effort to critique and redress cultural amnesia. He introduces at least five new pieces, including End Transmission, Submission to a Small World, A Peaceful Drowning, and The Duck of Nature/The Duck of God. The evening is consummated with the new closing chapter of his masterwork Lessons of the Blood. This 45-min. section serves as a powerful platform for Hong’s abiding obsession with the Japanese atrocities in Nanking, China.
