SYNOPSIS

Released to critical acclaim in 1997, the year of the Hong Kong handover, Fruit Chan’s Made in Hong Kong was praised as an anarchic masterpiece, a powerful distillation of urban alienation and youthful despair.

Moon (Sam Lee) is a small-time triad, stuck in an endless cycle of pointless violence with no hope of escape. After he and his friends witness the suicide of a young girl, they embark on a journey to deliver two letters she had on her when she died. 

Produced on a shoestring budget, with non-professional actors and using discarded film reels   for stock, the film has been rescued from obscurity and fully restored in 4K in time for its 20th anniversary in 2017 , thanks to the Far East Film Festival, in collaboration with Andy Lau’s Hong Kong production company, Focus Film.
