A lecture by Olaf Möller
Starting in 1956, Hong Kong was shaken on an almost regular bases by mass protests – which all had different reasons and were organized by widely different groups but unleashed all in one way or another the same feelings and worries: that of being oppressed first by their British colonizers and now by the People’s Republic of China. Olaf Möller will talk about this complicated and conflict-heavy history apropos choice examples from Hong Kong’s film history addressing the protests.
