CHANGCHUN, July 6 (Xinhua) -- A movie about a Chinese mother who adopted a Japanese war orphan will be screened in September to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the Chinese victory over Japan in World War II.

The movie "Department of Dance" is based on a real story which took place in a small village in northeast China's Jilin Province in 1945, when a Chinese mother adopted a Japanese war orphan during Japan's retreat. Her own daughter was killed by a Japanese soldier during the eight-year war.

Qiu Yiyu, director of the movie, said in an interview Tuesday that she wanted to show that the world was one big family through the movie.

The movie was jointly made by Northeast Normal University and the Chinese Dancers' Association.

Japan invaded China in July 1937. Japanese troops in China formally surrendered on Sept. 9, 1945.
