Go After an Easy Prey (Chinese: 瓮中捉鳖) is a Chinese animated film in black and white from 1948. It is also referred to as "Turtle Caught in a Jar".
The title of the film is a phrase describing something as easy to catch as a turtle. The off English translation maybe "shooting fish in a barrel".
The film was produced by the Northeast Film Studio
during its transitional phase with the downfall of the puppet government Manchukuo
The film is believed to be more of a documentary view of China's civil war
in the 1940s when Chiang Kai-shek
was considered to be favored and aided by U.S imperialism
. He was metaphorically described as trapped like a turtle by the People's Liberation Army
. This is possibly China's first use of animation directly as a propaganda tool.
