Hong Kong Human Rights Documentary Film Festival 2018
Time Out says
The annual documentary film festival returns with 13 new films
Organised by Amnesty International, the Hong Kong Human Rights Documentary Film Festival is one of the most important film fests to take place in the city.
Now in its eighth year, the theme for 2018 is ‘We Are Watching’. Selected documentaries this year include the award-winning Last Men in Aleppo, which follows a local volunteer organisation in one of Syria’s most devastated cities; The Workers Cup about migrants brought to Qatar to prepare for the country’s hosting of the Fifa World Cup in 2022; Freedom for the Wolf, which examines what is democracy and why are our elected officials recklessly destroying previously cherished values; and Free Speech Fear Free, a documentary that examines the nature of free speech and what life is truly like in countries where it is lacking.
The main portion of the festival takes place from September 26 to October 4 at Broadway Cinematheque, but free community screenings are taking place too. Check the event website for details.
