Puyi: The Last Emperor of China
After more than two thousand years of Imperial rule, the reign of Puyi - China’s last emperor - ended in 1912, ushering in one of the most tumultuous and dramatic periods in Chinese history. Using recently unearthed archival footage and previously unpublished photos, together with interviews from Puyi’s relatives and consorts, this fascinating two-part documentary takes an in-depth look at Puyi’s incredible life: from his rise to the throne at age three, to his controversial role as a puppet ruler for the Japanese, and later as a prisoner in a ‘re-education’ camp and a victim of the Cultural Revolution.
