An identity split, a people divided, a city in flux. Working with a group of local photographers, director Tom J Bennett (b. 1995) explores the meaning of freedom and identity in a land with a colonial past and an authoritarian future.
Shot at the height of the Hong Kong protests in late 2019, 3 Yourself combines original and archival footage and photography to paint a shimmering quick-fire picture of a revolution.
