Thu 15 September — Sun 25 September 2016

Dir. Nanfu Wang, China USA, 2016, 84mins

Brave, daring exposé of human rights abuses and governmental intimidation in China.

Director Nanfu Wang follows maverick gender activist Ye Haiyan (aka Hooligan Sparrow) as she protests against local authorities’ failure to hold officials accountable for a string of sexual abuse cases against children. Soon, both Wang and Haiyan are branded enemies of the state and subjected to intimidation, with Wang forced to film in secret and smuggle her footage of out the country.

Documenting harassment, interrogation and surveillance by uniformed and secret police, Wang’s nervy camerawork vividly conveys the grip of repression that leads so many in China to police themselves into silence – and embodies the incredible courage of those who refuse to give in.

With short film No Offense (Kris Borghs, Belgium, 2016, 6min40sec)

Join us after the film for inspiring conversations and opportunities for creative, effective personal action, with guests including Naomi McAuliffe (Scotland Programme Director, Amnesty International).

Presented in association with Amnesty International.
