One of the surprise discoveries of the Sundance Film Festival when it premiered, HOOLIGAN SPARROW plays like a real life heist movie, except the criminal on the run is not a criminal at all, but a feminist activist targeted by the Chinese government for speaking out against corruption, trafficking, and censorship. Nanfu Wang’s suspenseful docu-thriller pulls back the curtain on China’s hidden violations of human rights and basic freedoms, while celebrating the bravery and brilliance of the country’s activists.

Presented in partnership with Austin Asian American Film Festival.

— Directed by Nanfu Wang
China/USA, 2016, 1h 24min, DCP, In English and Mandarin with English subtitles
