Daybreak (Tianming ) (China, 1933)

Directed by Sun Yu. Cast: Lili Li, Zhanfei Gao, Congmei Yuan. Perhaps more than any other director working at that time, Sun Yu consistently sought to portray the working class affected by feudalism and imperialism. In Daybreak, Li plays a villager forced into prostitution in Shanghai, while her lover (Gao) joins the revolutionaries. After she helps him flee the authorities, she is sentenced to death by a firing squad, a scene of devastating impact. 115 min. Credits and other information from the Internet Movie Database
