Once upon a time, there were two villages. One village lived sweet-natured sheep. The other lived evil wolves.The two villages were close to each other, but the Sheep Village had a fence which kept the wolves from entering the to harm the flock.For the longest time, shepherds led the flock. Sheep Village had clean rivers, wide pastures, and a fun park. Every day after sunrise, all the sheep would go to work, while little lambs get to play in the fun park.

The trade has a lot of questions. We have had meetings with officials, mainly to ask them what's allowed and what's not…. But the government hasn’t been able to give any concrete answer...Most of us [filmmakers] just want to make movies to entertain people, express our beliefs or make movies that move us personally… Directors should be brave, we should stand firm and make movies for things that are worth it. Although there may be a lot of uncertainties, if you don’t keep walking how would you find out whether there’s a way? How could you censor yourself? I think we should be brave and stride ahead.

Pleading guilty in a Hong Kong court is not necessarily an admission of having committed a wrong these days
It is hard to imagine what Andy Li has been through since the trumped up National Security charges were first levelled against him in August 2020.
Held for six months in arbitrary detention in mainland China, he will have almost definitely faced torture and intimidation ahead of today's plea.
His current show trial on vague and absurd charges of "collusion with foreign forces" is another dark day on Hong Kong's road to authoritarianism. The case shows that the mainlandisation of Hong Kong is seeping into the legal system. Testimonies which are likely to have come under duress should be rejected out of hand, not accepted as reliable. The guilty plea only shows that both he and Chan Tsz-Wah no longer believe you can get a fair trial in Hong Kong.
