Description

YP 1967 - London Premiere Screening

Directed by Can TO Written by Jenny LEE

Everyone has their secrets. Everyone has the past no one’s heard about. But what makes an entire generation sit in stunned silence with unmentionable hesitation to talk about their past? Even the past was 50 years ago.

Five decades after the Hong Kong leftist riots, six ex-young prisoners speak out for the first time about their personal and unmentionable experience. Documentary film YP 1967 is about their love and hate towards their country, their honour and dishonour as a convicted criminal, their condonation and condemnation of the parties involved, and their truth-seeking and reconciliation with the past.


Following the screening the director Can To will be in conversation with two ex-young prisoners and special guests.


First come, First served. Door opens at 5:45 pm.

** We strongly advise arriving before 6:00 pm due to the security checks. Once you have passed through the Museum’s front gate on Great Russell Street, event visitors will be able to join the fast track lane through these security checks.
