Roar of the People Still


In 1934, director Tang Xiaodan moved to Hong Kong and directed a series of socially conscious films about the darkest corners of society. Produced by the Grandview Company, Tang's rousing wartime drama is set in Hong Kong during the Sino-Japanese war, when people fled to Hong Kong from Mainland China to escape the fires of war. The poor are forced to starve on the street, while the rich continue to thrive.

One evil businessman in particular bullies the workers and conspires with Kuomintang officers to sell tungsten wire to the enemy. When they finally realize the severity of the businessman's crimes, the workers decide to fight back. Cheung Ying is especially charismatic as the workers' leader, providing the civilized middle ground between the outraged workers and the greedy businessman.
