Excellent documentary of Hong Kong recent political issues
1 March 2015 | by cheungkongipSee all my reviews

This is an excellent documentary video of recent Hong Kong and it's political issues. The video follows Joshua Wong (Times Magazine Person of the Year nominees 2014) and Ma Jai and their daily lives. In school, home, with friends and as political activists. It shows 2 extraordinary young individuals who use very different approaches to encourage public political awareness and reform. The Chinese title of the video translate as "Not Old Enough". Joshua and Ma Jai breaks away from traditional Chinese thinking that young kids can not make a difference because they do not have enough experience.

Matthew Torne is an English director who have studied in Mainland with first hand insider understanding. He explains the situation from an outsider perspective. The video details events up to 2012 while the included booklet details events up through 2014 Umbrella Movement. The video dialog is in Cantonese with English-Chinese subtitles. The booklet is in both English and Chinese.

This is a very inspiring video for all to watch and to understand Hong Kong-Mainland China's relationship.
