Two decades after the Sino-British Handover of Hong Kong in 1997, the former colony has been engaged in intense democratic struggles that began with the 2014 Umbrella Movement for universal suffrage. Yet the passage of the National Security Law, enacted by Beijing for Hong Kong, now threatens to wipe out the city’s freedom and autonomy. What can the international community do? And what is Britain’s responsibility, if there still is any, over Hong Kong? What will happen to the city’s opposition activists?

Here’s a timely and illuminating conversation with film director Evans Chan and China and Hong Kong experts Benedict Rogers (Hong Kong Watch), Steve Tsang (SOAS China Institute), Brian Leung (University of Washington) and Sharon Hom (Human Rights in China), along with Hong Kong documentary scholar Mike Ingham (Lingnan University, Hong Kong) on the occasion of the UK online premiere of Evans Chan’s documentary, We Have Boots.
