On the 100th Anniversary of the Chinese Revolution of October 1911


Feature film based on historical accounts
2007, 120 minutes
Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles
Filmed entirely on location in Penang, Malaysia


Sun Yat-sen is in exile again after his ninth uprising in China fails in 1910. The Qing government in China has put a price of 700,000 taels of silver on his head.

The film depicts an obscure episode in Dr. Sun Yat-sen's revolutionary life, when, banned from most other countries, he sought refuge on the island of Penang in British Malaya from July to December 1910. He relocated the Southeast Asian headquarters of his political party, the Tongmenghui, to Penang and convened the Penang Conference to stage the Second Guangzhou Uprising.
