Join us for a screening of Vanished Archives, an acclaimed documentary film about the historically significant 1967 anti-colonial riots in Hong Kong. Executive producer Connie Lo Yan Wai spent four years interviewing participants in the riots, including members of the “bomb squads”, union leaders, students, government officials, law enforcement personnel, journalists and victims. The vision of the producer is to “respect the facts, and learn from the lessons.”
