(Clip from Nie Er shown during the presentation cannot be embedded in this powerpoint) A partial clip of this scene is available on Youtube www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehkFdOzozQ0

At Red Cross Station (Japanese invasion, 1930s).

Song & Dance Troupe: “What shall we sing?”

Man: “We’ll sing our most popular song” [”Peach Blossom River”; a popular entertainment piece about love, pretty women, etc.] . . .

Nie Er [composer & social-political activist]: “We’ll sing something else.” [Sings a rousing rendition of “La Marseillaise” in Chinese.]

Leftist musicians and artists enter: “That’s a good song, but China needs its own ‘La Marseillaise’.”

[By the end of the film, Nie Er has composed a theme song for another Chinese feature film of the 1930s; that song went on to become the Chinese national anthem.]

In other words, the most “patriotic” and “national” songs are not always what we might expect them to be.

Also available: “Song of the Civil Revolution,” 1927 (sung to the tune of Frere Jacques) www.youtube.com/watch?v=JST-TlOTRec
