In recent years, there seem to be many Hong Kong movies that tend to focus on portraying people from the fringes of society in a realistic setting, so as to shed light and raise awareness about various social issues and stigma. Such films include Happiness (2016), Mad World (2017), and Tomorrow Is Another Day (2018). It is evident that the bulk of these films are being made by a new generation of filmmakers. Why do the younger directors tend to focus on such serious topics or characters from the fringes? Will this emerging trend be sustained in the long run?
Let us hear from our panel of filmmakers – Jevons Au (Distinction – writer/ director), Jun Li (Tracey – writer/director), Shu Kei (Tracey – writer/ producer) and Oliver Chan (Still Human – writer/ director) as they share their experiences in making their respective films and their views on this new trend in Hong Kong Cinema.
