English
In order to shine a light on Hongkongers' ongoing battle for a free and democratic Hong Kong, those of us abroad have organised a showing of director Kiwi Chow's critically-acclaimed documentary, Revolution of Our Times. The screening will be followed by a Q&A.

The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2021 in a last-minute, secret screening meant to avoid backlash from Chinese authorities and filmmakers. It has now been made available for screening around the world. The film is in Cantonese with English subtitles.

Synopsis
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 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 2019 movement is always labelled with the characteristics of 'decentralized leadership', 'be water' (flexible tactics), 'do not split' and 'blossoming everywhere' (protest all over the territory). The film covers seven teams of protestors with different stories which put together a comprehensive picture of the versatile movement.
