"We interviewed individuals and asked them to tell us what Hong Kong was to them (it didn't need to be political). And in the video, it shows that with individual opinions, friends and like-minded people started to form small groups. Eventually, it resulted in a huge group of people on the street sharing the same incentive to voice their opions for the betterment of Hong Kong.
And the protestors displayed the most utopian community that had ever been seen here: everyone took up a role, provided food, water and other supplies (and not many people wanted to take them in case others really needed them), they held signs telling everyone to stay calm, peaceful and focused, avoid drinking and violence, teachers hosted mobile classrooms to educate the protesters on different topics of relevant social issues, etc."
Nominated in Sundance Film Festival 2015.
