Jin Yan

Jin Yan returned to a city throttled by the KMT. He discovered that the party had taken over all of the film studios in Shanghai right after the war. Most left-wing movie people left for Hong Kong when it was obvious that they could not produce progressive films. The KMT also appropriated more than 200 companies from broadcasting stations to shipping companies with no compensation given to the original owners. Government monopolies ran almost every major area of enterprise. Jin had hope of returning to the activism of the past. Jin sought out his friends who had returned. He shared a flat with Liu Qiong. Later, Liu introduced Jin to actress Qin Yi. Despite the repressive political atmosphere, their romance bloomed. Jin and Qin were married in 1947. On October 1, 1949 Mao officially proclaimed the founding of the People's Republic of China.
