DIRECTOR: EVANS CHAN

Praised and censored, Raise the Umbrellas brings together a chorus of voices to discuss and define the 2014 Umbrella Movement. Represented are not only recognizable activists like student leader Joshua Wong, Hong Kong Democratic party founder Martin Lee, and Occupy Central mastermind Benny Tai, but also students, Cantopop icons, politicians, and “Umbrella mothers.” The result is a comprehensive portrait in-the-round of the occupation, doing justice to a multifaceted mass action that is too often reduced to one-sided talking points.
