Directress Film Festival: Hooligan Sparrow (2016)

  • Hooligan Sparrow (2016) Slider Image

China | 84 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Nanfu Wang

The danger is palpable as intrepid young filmmaker Nanfu Wang follows maverick activist Ye Haiyan (a.k.a Hooligan Sparrow) and her band of colleagues to Hainan Province in southern China to protest the case of six elementary school girls who were sexually abused by their principal. Marked as enemies of the state, the activists are under constant government surveillance and face interrogation, harassment, and imprisonment. 

"'Hooligan Sparrow' is a literal and moving testament to how political protest works: It may start off looking "small," but it becomes powerful and large when it is seen." -Owen Gleiberman (Variety)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
