Hooligan Sparrow

Directed by Nanfu Wang Produced by Nanfu Wang

Intrepid young filmmaker, Nanfu Wang, follows activist “Hooligan Sparrow,” and her band of colleagues to China’s Hainan Province to protest the case of six elementary school girls who were sexually abused by their principal. Marked as enemies of the state, the activists are under constant government surveillance and face interrogation, harassment, and imprisonment. Through smuggled footage, Wang tells the story of her journey with the extraordinary Sparrow, her fellow activists, and their seemingly impossible battle for human rights. (Dallas)
