In this picture taken on February 8, 2017, Chinese film-maker Wen Hai, 46, speaks during an interview on his documentary "We The Workers" with AFP in Hong Kong. Film-maker Wen Hai had intended to portray the gritty lives of Chinese migrants toiling in factories in his documentary "We The Workers", but wound up chronicling a gathering crackdown on courageous labour groups. The 174-minute film serves as a record of the waning months for unofficial labour organisations, run mostly by current and former workers, whose lobbying for better pay and treatment in southern China unnerved authorities. / AFP / Anthony WALLACE / TO GO WITH China-politics-rights-labour, INTERVIEW by Joanna CHIU (Photo credit should read ANTHONY WALLACE/AFP/Getty Images)
