WOU announces Charity Premiere Screening of ‘Road to Dawn’

WOU is privileged to secure the distribution rights of the film Road to Dawn for Malaysia and Brunei to raise funds for Wawasan Education Foundation. The movie is scheduled to be screened nationwide at eight charity previews once green light is given by the Film Censorship Board.

The patron of the steering committee for the premiere is Energy, Water and Communications Minister and WOU Council Chairman Dato’ Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik. The committee is headed by Deputy Information Minister Dato’ Seri Chia Kwang Chye, while Penang Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon and WOU Vice Chancellor Tan Sri Emeritus Prof Gajaraj Dhanarajan are its advisors.

A nationalistic revolution and a whirlwind romance in the volatile era of the 1900s are potent elements of Road to Dawn. The culturally rich movie is centered on the personal life of Dr Sun Yat Sen and his attempts to raise funds for the Guangzhou Uprising (1910).

What is even more exciting is the fact that the China-produced film was shot entirely in our own backyard, amongst Penang’s heritage buildings and scenery! One famous scene captures the secret meeting (Binen) that took place at 120 Armenian Street, that is, Dr Sun’s Penang base.

The star-studded cast include Taiwanese actor Winston Chao as Dr Sun, China’s well-known actress Wu Yue as Dr Sun’s wife, and Angelica Lee Sin Je, a native of Alor Setar, playing a nyonya who supports Dr Sun’s work.

The film premiered at the Great Hall in Beijing, China, on 29 June 2007 and is scheduled to hit Malaysian soil by mid-July.
