Most of Hong Kong's free press has been dismantled, and many leading journalists have been arrested. Jacky has decided to keep reporting anyway, and now works alone. Former journalist Kris hopes to foster media literacy through a bookstore. Neither route is easy, however. Kris has to jump hurdles to find the books he is interested in for his store. He ends up having to import many from Taiwan. Meanwhile Jacky, who now self-publishes his work online, is troubled by a user comment. The user said they would report Jacky's work to the national security police. In the ‘Reporters Without Borders’ press freedom index, Hong Kong plummeted from the 80th to the 148th place in just one year. A report by Phoebe Kong. #documentary #dwdocumentary #HongKong ______
