Last Exit to Kai Tak

Weaving together the stories and interactions of five activists (Joshua Wong, Denise Ho, Wong Yeung Tat, Ed Lau and Derek Lam) and their friends with astonishing fluidity as they come to terms with life in a post-Umbrella Movement Hong Kong and the realisation that life is the sum of all their choices. Director Matthew Torne (Lessons in Dissent [2014], Joshua: Teenager vs Superpower [2017]) serves up five slices of Twenty-First Century Hong Kong life in this ambitious mosaic of a film.
