Love in the Time of Revolution 因為愛所以革命


Twinkle Ngan Chi-Sing | 107min

【Ordinary people telling extraordinary stories】

Echoing with voices from the streets of Hong Kong, "Love in the Time of Revolution" documents the passion, spirit and sacrifice of ordinary Hong Kongers during a time of political and social upheaval. 

In 2019, Hong Kong government plans to introduce a law permitting the extradition of criminal suspects to Mainland China sparked a mass protest movement unprecedented in scale. The people of Hong Kong marched — 1 million strong, then 2 million — to save what they saw as the city’s eroding freedoms and rule of law. When their demands went unheeded, the protests intensified, and the streets of Hong Kong became soaked in tear gas and blood as valiant frontline protesters clashed with riot police. Behind the frontliners stood a peaceful silent majority, committed to a hard-won solidarity as they attempt to save the city that they love. 

"Love in the Time of Revolution" takes viewers onto the streets of Hong Kong, to the very front lines of the protests, and follows the stories of just some of the protesters and their fellow Hong Kong citizens. It tells their extraordinary stories: the stories of ordinary people at a pivotal moment in their city’s history, as they experience hope and desperation, love and heartbreak, fighting for their home.
