Hooligan Sparrow is a courageous documentary by young Chinese filmmaker Nanfu Wang. Armed with her camera, she follows a group of activists under the guidance of Ye Haiyan during their protests against impunity surrounding a sex scandal. Besides her nickname 'Hooligan Sparrow', it also gained her a great deal of online attention, as well as the attention of the authorities. Soon Sparrow becomes an enemy of the state and the government does everything it can to silence her.
