Netflix News: Feel the hope from the trailer for ‘Joshua: Teenager vs Superpower’

A Netflix original documentary directed by Joe Piscatella, Joshua: Teenager vs. Superpower, launches globally on May 26.

About Joshua: Teenager vs. Superpower: 

When the Chinese Communist Party alters its promise of autonomy to Hong Kong – handed back to the Chinese government from British rule in 1997 – teenager Joshua Wong decides to fight for his homeland.  Rallying thousands of kids to skip school and occupy the streets, and without a long-term plan but with passion to spare, Joshua becomes an unlikely leader in Hong Kong. A remarkable portrait of courage, resilience, and the propulsive power of youthful idealism, JOSHUA : TEENAGER VS. SUPERPOWER, the winner of this year’s Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, is a chronicle of one young man risking his own future for a greater good.

The film won the Audience Award at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival (World Cinema Documentary Competition).
