My Least Favourite Person
Directed by Lantian Chen
Remember fighting for justice when you were a child? Has a teacher ever given you an unreasonable punishment? A Chinese elementary school student faces punishments for standing up to bullies. How will she handle it? Should she stand for what she believes in, or to accept her teacher’s version that she is wrong?
