Chinese Film Forum UK presents Salute! Sun Yat-Sen

Directed by Yee Chih-yen

A hilarious heist caper becomes a rallying cry for disaffected youth in this multi-layered comedy. Tired of being hounded for his high-school tuition fee, Lefty sets his eyes on a bronze statue of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen (father of Republican China), long abandoned in storage at school. He convinces his classmates to steal and sell the “Country Father” for hard cash.
