Sobbing, singing and standing ovations are not typical responses in a Vancouver cinema, much less for a 152-minute documentary.⁠

But Revolution of Our Times, director Kiwi Chow Kwun-wai’s visceral account of Hong Kong’s 2019 upheaval, is being received like no typical movie in a Canadian city that has served as a proxy arena for conflict between supporters and opponents of the protest movement that encompassed broadly democratic and anti-government goals.⁠

All 3,000 tickets for 14 Vancouver screenings in two cinemas, running from February 11 until March 13, were sold out almost immediately, organisers say.⁠

Attendees said emotional scenes on screen were reflected among audiences; some wept throughout, others chanted the protest slogan “Hong Kong, add oil”, and at the end many stood and sang the unofficial protest anthem Glory to Hong Kong.⁠
