Co-presented by Anti-480 and the Department of Sociology, HKU


 

About Hope

Hope is a 2013 South Korean film, which won Best Film at the 34th Blue Dragon Film Award. This film is based on a true story, the infamous Nayoung Case in 2008 – an 8-year-old girl called “Na-young” in the Korean Press was raped and beaten by a drunk 57-year-old man in a public toilet. The court sentenced the man to only 12 years in prison. Due to the terrible brutality of the crime and the man’s history of physical and sexual violence, it caused outrage in the country.

Liberty Asia invites HKU to join Anti-Slavery Day

There are more slaves today than ever in history— a shocking 21 million slaves worldwide with half in Asia alone, including Hong Kong.  On October 18th Anti-Slavery Day, the international community takes a united stand to raise awareness about this global crime and to inspire people to take action to end it.

To mark this significant time of the year, Liberty Asia, in collaboration with HKU’s Sociology Department and The Centre for Comparative and Public Law, invites you to be part of a stirring, interactive exhibition featuring real-life stories of slavery survivors, innovations and developments in anti-slavery, and ways you can get involved in the fight against slavery!  The opening will take place at 6pm on Friday, October 18th, and the exhibition will be open to the public from October 19th-25th at Room702 on the 7/F of The Jockey Club Tower at HKU.

Avid anti-slavery advocate and internationally-acclaimed actor, Mr. Chapman To will kick off the event by speaking out against the injustices of this global trade and by rallying Hong Kong to unite against slavery.

On October 23rd, a film screening of Not My Life will take place to compliment the exhibition. This documentary vividly depicts the harsh realities and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and slavery.  The film will start at 6:00pm followed by a student dialogue at 7:30pm at the 11/F, Cheng Yu Tung Tower at HKU.

Don’t Turn Away, Fight Slavery Now!

Painting the transition: Contemporary art in Myanmar

Date: May 23 to June 15, 2013 (Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays)
Time: 1 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Venue: MC³@702, 7/F Jockey Club Tower, Faculty of Social Sciences, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam Road, Hong Kong

As Myanmar’s political reforms unfold, artists and intellectuals are exploring new space for creative self-expression. Today writers give readings at literary festivals, musicians perform rap and hip hop in concert, and painters exhibit canvases that for decades could be shared only with trusted friends.

“Painting the transition” presents the work of a dozen leading contemporary artists. While some are openly political, most are concerned above all to connect with and update the cultural heritage of a major artistic tradition.

Buddhist symbols and ritual feature strongly. Ethnic costume, music and dance are key themes. Customs and habits of village people in a still rural society are carefully represented. Changing
rhythms of urban life are fully documented.

In these many ways, contemporary painters capture a society embarking on what is certain to be a difficult journey. The start point was military dictatorship. The end point is unknown. Capturing twists and turns in the road is a network of accomplished artists emerging from a hermetic state.

The exhibition is hosted by MC3@702, 7/F Jockey Club Tower, Faculty of Social Sciences, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam Road, Hong Kong. The gallery is open from 13:00 to 18:00 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only from May 23 to June 15, 2013.

Entrance is free.

All are welcome.
