With specificity, sweep and urgency, occasionally terrifying and bloody when capturing violent police tactics, Chow's movie is a true epic of meaningful resistance. — Los Angeles Times

Banned in Hong Kong, this award-winning documentary film, completed by Hong Kong director Kiwi Chow with high physical and political risk, captures the intensity of Hong Kong’s street protests in 2019-20. The amazing close-range footage documents how an originally peaceful movement escalated. It reveals the beliefs and feelings of key activists in search of a democratic political system and determination to struggle against the spectre of PRC authoritarianism.

The film screening will be followed by a Q&A discussion with Former Hong Kong Legislator Mr Ted C.F. Hui, moderated by Dr. Joyce Y.M. Nip.

Ted Chi-Fung Hui 許智峯 was born in Hong Kong and currently resides in exile in Australia. Mr. Hui was democratically elected in Hong Kong as a District Councillor for the Central and Western Council seat in 2011 and later as a Legislator for the Hong Kong Island constituency in 2016. Whilst in exile, Mr. Hui spends his time advocating and supporting the international battlefront for freedom and democracy in Hong Kong. As well as being bilingual in Chinese/English, Mr Hui has a Bachelor’s degree in Laws with Honours from the City University of Hong Kong.

Joyce Y.M. Nip is an associate professor in Chinese media studies at the University of Sydney. She has spent most of her life in Hong Kong, where she worked as an academic, journalist, and art administrator.
