Over the past fifty years, Hongkongers have fought for freedom and democracy but have yet to succeed. In 2019, the “Extradition Bill” to China opened a Pandora’s box, turning Hong Kong into a battlefield against the Chinese authoritarian rule.
The award-winning director of “Ten Years: Self Immolator,” Kiwi Chow, made this documentary to tell the story of the movement both with a macro view of its historical context and up close and personal on the front lines. The film covers seven teams of protestors with different stories which are put together as a comprehensive picture of the versatile movement.
