11 AM: AUTUMN GEM explores the extraordinary life of modern China's first feminist Qiu Jin (1875-1907). A radical women's rights activist, Qiu Jin attempted an armed uprising against the corrupt Qing Dynasty and became the first female martyr for China's 1911 Revolution. Compared to a "Chinese Joan of Arc," she is celebrated as a national heroine today. Using scholar interviews, archival materials, and dramatic reenactment scenes based on her original writings, AUTUMN GEM brings the story of Qiu Jin to life.
