In recent events, Mainland China refused to air the Hong Kong Film Awards Ceremony because of the film that won first place. This film was called “Ten Years” and is about a dark future for Hong Kong being bullied by Mainland China into assimilation. In reflects on how Mainland China’s “one country two systems” policy isn’t actually being carried out. CCTV suddenly switched from the airing to show a cooking show at the time when it was supposed to be broadcasted. A Chinese newspaper reported that the film was “absurd,” a “thought virus,” and “fear mongering.” The event shows an increase in tension between Hong Kong and Mainland China. But what do you think; did either side go too far?
