The Woman Knight Of Mirror Lake
TV2, Astro Ch 102/HyppTV Ch 102, 9.30pm
China has seen many revolutions throughout its long history, but Chinese feminist revolutionary Qiu Jin has stood out among the many. In this biographical film, we follow the life of Qiu Jin (Huang Yi) as she influences the uprising against the Qing Dynasty in the Anhui province. But it all starts somewhere – when Qiu Jin was just a little girl. Having resisted the common practice of feet binding, and pursuing horse riding, martial arts and literature instead, Qiu Jin realises that change is required to make China a stronger nation. Also starring Kevin Cheng, Pat Ha, and Dennis To.
