Today, I am deeply honoured to share with you the news that “Long Hair Revolution (長毛革命)”, my debut documentary about the rebel Hong Kong politician Leung Kwok-hung (nickname Long Hair), is now part of the federal government Library and Archives Canada permanent collection in Ottawa.

Feel free to watch “Long Hair Revolution” on YouTube to see an atypical Long Hair in 2004 that is calm and reflective during one of the most eventful months in Hong Kong financial and political history.
