When the Chinese Communist Party alters its promise of autonomy to Hong Kong - handed back to the Chinese government from British rule in 1997 - teenager Joshua Wong decides to fight for his homeland. Rallying thousands of kids to skip school and occupy the streets, and without a long-term plan but with passion to spare, Joshua becomes an unlikely leader in Hong Kong. A remarkable portrait of courage, resilience, and the propulsive power of youthful idealism, JOSHUA : TEENAGER VS. SUPERPOWER, the winner of this year's Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, is a chronicle of one young man risking his own future for a greater good.

To enhance understanding of this current and important human rights issue, the film will be followed by a discussion moderated by Katrina Lantos Swett. Dr. Lantos Swett is President of the New Hampshire based Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice, which has chosen Joshua Wong to receive 2018 Lantos Human Rights Prize . She is a former Chair and Vice Chair of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (UISCIRF) and an international keynote speaker on human rights and religious freedom.
Andrew Duncan Dr. Lianchao Han
She will be joined by human rights activist and film producer Andrew Duncan and well-known pro-democracy leader Dr. Lianchao Han. Mr. Duncan's singular support of Joshua over the past several years has been crucial. Dr. Han began his advocacy as a student in the late 1970's in China. Like Joshua, he was one of the organizers of student protests for free elections in his country. This is a unique opportunity to speak with experts who are personally connected to Joshua Wong and other leaders of Demosisto in Hong Kong.
