Cockroach is a poignant and dramatic visual record of the final moments of an independent, democratic Hong Kong. In 2019 Hong Kong erupted into months of street demonstrations, police suppression and violence in response to a proposed bill which allowed for extradition to mainland China for criminal prosecutions. Cockroach captures the fear and frustration in Hong Kong in the lead-up to the imposition of the National Security Law in Hong Kong on 30 June 2020.

A live Q&A with Ai Weiwei and Wang Fen will take place at 13:00 followed by a screening of the film.
