Senior Chinese leader meets "1911" film crew


10:58, September 20, 2011

BEIJING, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Top political advisor Jia Qinglin on Monday met with crew members working on "1911," a star-studded film dedicated to the centennial anniversary of the 1911 Revolution, an event that marked the end of 2,000 years of imperial rule in China.

Jia praised the filmmakers for presenting the historic event in a profound and artistic manner.

"The film depicts a variety of historical figures, including Sun Yat-sen and Huang Xing. Its crew members strived to unite profoundness, artistic value and entertainment with a serious attitude," said Jia, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.

Sun and Huang were both key figures in the 1911 Revolution, leading several revolutionary organizations to overthrow the government of the Qing Dynasty (1616-1911).

Jia said that he hopes political consultative organizations at all levels will assist in the promotion and distribution of the film in order to ensure that the country's cinema audiences fully appreciate and understand the significance of the historical event on which it is based.

The film, directed by Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan, will be released nationwide on Sept. 23.
