“The Revolutionary” - Sid Rittenberg in China

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Irv Drasnin, writer and producer of “The Revolutionary,” discusses the documentary, along with its subject, Sidney Rittenberg, a 91 year-old American expatriate who was the only American citizen to join the Chinese Communist party. He was dedicated to Mao’s revolution, reaching a position of influence unprecedented for a foreigner, and he was Mao’s acolyte through the upheavals which formed contemporary China. “The Revolutionary” opens April 12 at the Quad Cinema.
