Hooligan Sparrow premiered at Sundance 2016
and has played over 60 film festivals and won over 20 awards including the IDA
Emerging Filmmaker Award and nominations for the Independent Spirit – Truer
Than Fiction Award, the Cinema Eye Honors, and the BFCA Critics’ Choice
Documentary Award. A real-life thriller unfolds as filmmaker Nanfu Wang follows
a daring Chinese human rights defender seeking justice for six girls
who were raped by their principal. The government cracks down violently on the
activist – known throughout China as ‘Hooligan Sparrow’ – arresting her,
chasing her across the country, and paying mobs to attack her. Filmmaker Wang
herself becomes a target of the state’s intimidation tactics as she exposes the
truth of China’s ongoing human rights catastrophe.
