Karl (20 min. documentary)
To express a demand for true democracy, some students from CUHK’s Cultural and Religious Studies department organized a strike group and spontaneously participated in the Umbrella Movement. Karl is a member of this strike group. He is always very active, but is affected by the pressure from society and family at the same time. The mood of Karl fluctuates with the development of the movement. Karl says that while everything has undergone too many changes since that time, the most important thing is that the Umbrella Movement allowed him to truly grow up.
