To Hong Kong with Love

February 1 to March 1

The Hong Kong protests were in the news for the better part of 2019 and the subject of widespread debate, much of it by outside observers with a vested interest in imposing their own narratives. From its days as a British colony to its present status as a Special Administrative Region in China, small Hong Kong’s fate has been largely decided by great powers, without consultation of its citizens—including the 1997 return of Hong Kong to China. As a corrective, To Hong Kong w/ <3 is made up of films that show Hong Kongers speaking for themselves, pairing classic fiction films that explore the soul of the city with new documentaries that give voice to those who are out in the streets, fighting to keep their vision of that soul intact.
