"Joshua: Teenager Versus Superpower"

When China's Communist Party breaks its promist of autonomy to Hong Kong, a teenager rallies thousands of kids to occupy the streets and becomes an unlikely leader and dissident. 

There will be a discussion with UCI graduate students Chit Wai John Mok, sociology, and Lev Nachman, political science, following the screening. The discussion will be led by Carlin Romano, professor of philosophy and humanities at Ursinus College, Critic-at-Large of The Chronicle of Higher Education, and author of America the Philosophical (Alfred A. Knopf/Vintage). He is a fellow of the UC National Center for Free Speech and Civic Engagement.
