Part of BAMcinématek
Directed by Nanfu Wang | 2016

BAMcinematek and Long Island University (LIU) present the winner of the third annual George Polk Documentary Film Award.

Fearless Chinese activist Ye Haiyan, known as Hooligan Sparrow, has incurred the wrath of the government in her fight for the rights of women and sex workers. Winner of the prestigious George Polk Award in Journalism, this gut punching, guerrilla documentary follows Ye as she protests the sexual abuse of schoolchildren—despite the state’s attempts to silence her. Told with the tension of a real-life thriller, it’s a daring exposé from the frontlines of China’s human rights struggle.

The George Polk Awards are conferred annually to honor special achievement in journalism. The awards place a premium on investigative and enterprising reporting that gains attention and achieves results. They were established in 1949 by LIU to commemorate George Polk, a CBS correspondent murdered in 1948 while covering the Greek civil war.
