NETPAC AWARD FOR BEST ASIAN FILM Golden Horse Film Festival 2021
In a race against time, a group of pro-democracy protesters set out to save a fellow teenager on the verge of suicide. Unfurling against the tense atmosphere of the 2019 Hong Kong Protests, May You Stay Forever Young interweaves documentary footage with vividly stylised dramatisations of a new generation’s revolutionary spirit.
As the characters grapple with generational tensions, consider the prospect of leaving the country, and weigh up the risks of joining the fight, the film offers a glimpse into the faultlines exacerbated by proposed amendments to the Fugitive Offenders Ordinance, which would potentially allow China to encroach upon Hong Kong’s political freedoms.
Coming of Rage: Asian Youth & Politics on Screen runs from 2 – 25 June 2023. See the full programme here.
