In June 2020, the National Security Law was enforced upon Hong Kong, having a massive impact on the ability of citizens to speak freely. A seemingly unending list of words, phrases, imagery and music were now illegal under this authoritarian ruling. Amid this crackdown, the sparks of passion and creativity blend into forms of protest as artists try and find ways to make their voices heard and to preserve their culture. Using her own voice to guide us through this time, filmmaker San San F Young pieces together works by underground artists, musicians, dancers, illustrators and performance artists, showcasing how art can provide some of the most powerful forms of activism. This mixtape serves as a love letter that ignites passion, celebrates artistic expression, and shows that in the face of being silenced, people always find ways of speaking out louder than ever.
