No. 1 Chung Ying Street
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
This controversial and striking film – shot in black and white – straddles two protest movements and the link between them. Hong Kong’s Chung Ying Street was the location of pro-China demonstrations against the British colonial government, which started in 1967, and the film follows four teenagers caught up in the conflict. Mid-way through, it switches to 2019, where protestors with roots in the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement of 2014 are on the barricades. One old man sees history repeating itself as rights are fought for once again.
