Chinese activist Ye Haiyan (aka Hooligan Sparrow) holds a sign that criticizes the lack of women's rights in China.

Chinese feminist Ye Haiyan (aka Hooligan Sparrow) has a reputation for her viral campaigns in support of sex workers. In the film “Hooligan Sparrow,” filmmaker Nanfu Wang follows the activist as she campaigns for justice in the southern province of Hainan, where six girls — all under the age of 14 — accuse their principal of rape. Sparrow and Wang both stand up to powerful interests that want this story to go away.
