Dubway engineer Louis Fisher recently recorded English voice-overs for Raise the Umbrellas, a documentary by Evans Chan, examining Hong Kong's democracy movement. The picture, originally released in 2016, was originally spoken in the Cantonese language.

Raise the Umbrellas explores the origin and impact of Hong Kong’s 2014 Umbrella Movement through the inter-generational lenses of three post-Tiananmen democratic activists – Martin Lee, founder of the Hong Kong Democratic party; Benny Tai, Occupy Central initiator; and Joshua Wong, the sprightly student leader. Comprehensive and intimate, driven by stirring on-site footage in a major Asian metropolis riven by protest, Umbrellas reveals the Movement’s eco-awareness, gay activism, and burgeoning localism.
