OSCAR SHORTLISTED

★★★★ "astonishing... deserves as wide an audience as possible." - Cine Vue

"Although Hooligan Sparrow is a protest film at heart, it is also a fascinating strategy and survival document." - Little White Lies

A group of activists protesting the alleged rape of six girls by a school headmaster and a government official quickly become fugitives. Filmmaker Nanfu Wang and super-activist Ye Haiyan (“Hooligan Sparrow”) must avoid government thugs and arrest. Sparrow becomes an enemy of the state, but detentions, interrogations, and evictions can’t stop her protest from going viral.

A thriller set across southern China featuring friends who will go to any lengths to expose the truth.
