Experience the amazing story of the “Chinese Joan of Arc” Qiu Jin (1875-1907), a radical women’s rights activist who defied tradition to become the leader of a revolutionary army. She attempted an armed uprising against the corrupt Qing Dynasty and became the first female martyr for China’s 1911 Revolution. Qiu Jin is celebrated as a national heroine today.
Using scholar commentary, archival materials, and dramatic reenactment scenes based on her original writings, AUTUMN GEM brings the story of Qiu Jin to life.
