Program Note
Blue Island is a moving documentary that proposes to look back at Hong Kong’s unfinished democratic revolution from a more comprehensive historical perspective. Since the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement in 2014, the image of courageous Hong Kong citizens has been covered a great deal in the news, and the Umbrella Revolution, with its powerful imagery, informed many people of the sad reality of Hong Kong. However, relatively little is known about what happened in Hong Kong before its return to China. The director remembers through reenactments how the older generation has also fought for freedom and democracy, through the Cultural Revolution and the Tiananmen Square protests. In the end, Hong Kong’s youth are reminded that their struggles are not of individuals but of the collective writing a new page in Hong Kong’s history. (KIM Bo-nyun)
