When A City Rises
When A City Rises invites the audience to live the resistance movement from within and offers a rare glimpse into the daily struggles of regular people who find their lives intertwined with a historic struggle for democracy. It is a story of hope, love, chaos and solidarity among strangers.
The protest movement began in June 2019 when the Hong Kong government proposed a repressive extradition bill that would have allowed Mainland China to summon people across the border for trial in its highly politicized legal system. More than a million marched in what quickly became the largest pro-democracy movement in the city’s history.
