Mong Kok First Aid 成年禮 investigates the experiences and unheard stories of a group of young volunteers who provided First Aid services to wounded participants during Hong Kong’s landmark Umbrella Movement of 2014. Just half a decade later, their first-person narratives reveal an intense feeling of time passing and memories fading, as this documentary seeks to challenge history by intervening to supplement the record. After all, who decides whose story can be part of history? Through the experiences of Conni and Hunter, Michael and Ten, four volunteers who lived through this period, and the many others who have to remain anonymous, the traumatic past and uncertain future of Hong Kong comes into focus.
