Freedom Swimmer

Olivia Martin McGuire

In Freedom Swimmer, a man tells his granddaughter about his failed attempts to flee from China's mainland to Hong Kong in the 1970’s. This era is marked by the Cultural Revolution and many conflicts, which affects Chinese society to this day. The risk of being caught at that time was high, but the price of freedom was higher. The film alternates poignant animation with found footage of the recent protests in Hong Kong.

Deze korte film maakte deel uit van het programma Shorts: The Fire Within tijdens het Movies that Matter Festival 2022.
