Comrades

COMRADES is a personal documentary essay about two men who took part in the violent socialist struggles of the mid-20th century, only to face resistance and disillusionment. The producer's father, Yook Wong, joined the communist revolution that swept through China in 1949. A generation later, a man named Alex Hing founded a group in San Francisco called the Red Guard, modeled after the communist youth in China. But in the end, the revolution didn't turn out the way anyone expected. Asian-American Studies/History.

Reviews
"The film captures compellingly the political ideals and disillusionment that, continents apart, linked two men from very different worlds."
