The Chinese government wants him silenced, but Jimmy Lai is far from done with fighting for freedom in Hong Kong.

Join the Acton Institute and America’s Future for an advance screening and discussion of our upcoming documentary, The Hong Konger: Jimmy Lai’s Extraordinary Struggle for Freedom.

When Hong Kong’s basic freedoms come under attack, media tycoon Jimmy Lai finds himself in the crosshairs of the state and must choose between defending Hong Kong’s long-standing liberties or his own freedom.

The Hong Konger chronicles Jimmy’s story of heroic sacrifice in defending the cause of freedom. From his own testimony and through exclusive interviews with diplomats, citizen activists, scholars, and friends from across the globe, one thing becomes clear: Jimmy’s fate is in our hands. His cause must not die in a prison cell—for freedom is not merely his cause, but the cause of all Hong Kongers, the Chinese people, and indeed all humanity.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the screening of the film will be followed by a brief discussion and Q&A.
