DENISE HO: BECOMING THE SONG profiles the openly gay Hong Kong singer and human rights activist Denise Ho. Drawing on unprecedented, years-long access, the film explores her remarkable journey from commercial Cantopop superstar to outspoken political activist, an artist who has put her life and career on the line to support the determined struggle of Hong Kong citizens to maintain their identity and freedom.
“As Beijing chips away at Hong Kong’s freedoms, the Cantopop singer has become its emblematic figure – embattled, emboldened, and unbeholden.” –THE NEW YORKER
