Hong Kong & The Fight for 21st Century Democracy

IN-PERSON / ONLINE / FILM SCREENING & DISCUSSION

Monday 23 August • 20:30 / Available online from Monday 23 August

REEL TALKS: HONG KONG & THE RIGHT FOR 21ST CENTURY DEMOCRACY 

Hong Kong has, since the 19th century, been a place apart within East Asia. Over 150 years of British governance gave way to China’s ‘one country, two systems’ administration in July 1997. China’s rise to global economic superpower has reshaped 21st century international relations, increasingly reframing Hong Kong as the frontline of a battle between different governmental and economic systems that has potentially global consequences.

Dr Catherine Jones (University of St Andrews) chairs this timely discussion about the future of Hong Kong democracy with a panel of experts including: Baroness Helena Kennedy, Dr Victor Fan (King’s College London), Jennifer Ngo (Director, Faceless) and Evan Fowler (co-founder Hong Kong Free Press).

This pre-recorded discussion will be shown after the film screening of Faceless on Monday 23 August at 20:30 – this is included with your ticket. The pre-recorded discussion will also be available as part of your online ticket, purchased and watched on www.filmhouseathome.com.
