Screening of the documentary film “Lessons in Dissent,” followed by a talk presentation by the film’s director, Matthew Torne

This documentary film is a must-see for those wishing to understand the origins of the student protests that have recently rocked Hong Kong.

The film charts the rise of Hong Kong teenage democracy activists Joshua Wong and Ma Wan Ke, leading figures in the Umbrella Movement that occurred recently in Hong Kong.

In the past year the film has been shown at Yale and Duke universities, as well as the New America think tank. It premiered at last year’s Hong Kong International Film Festival and played in Hong Kong cinemas through out the summer of 2014.
