Black Jail (1982) atrocities in Japanese Prison Camp
Black Jail (1982) atrocities in Japanese Prison Camp

Uncompromising Depiction of Atrocities in a Japanese Prison Camp


director: Ching Kong
starring: Ching Kong (as John T. King) · Yang Hui-Sang · Hsu Buh-Liao · Ling Ling Hsia · Lin Yung


This graphic film featuring the grotesque treatment of Chinese prisoners inside the notorious Japanese prison camp known as Black Jail was produced 8 years before the better know MAN BEHIND THE SUN. The story is similar, an uncompromising movie that vividly shows the atrocities committed by the Japanese against (male and female) Chinese political prisoners imprisoned in an impregnable fortress.

Cheng Kang was born in 1924 in Anhui Province. He quit school after being separated from his family at the age of 13, spending his teen years in an orphanage. In 1938, he joined the Hsin An Troupe, a traveling group that performed patriotic plays which incited resistance to Japanese occupation. After the war, he studied art and design at the Shanghai College. After arriving in Hong Kong in 1949, he began working as a scriptwriter for most of the major studios. It's estimated that he wrote over 300 scripts before joining the Shaw Bros studio as a director in 1970. Ten years later, he retired to Taiwan to make independent films. BLACK JAIL was produced at that time. Today, in his 90s, Ching Kong still works at his studio where he mentors new filmmakers.
