Made in Hong Kong is a powerful film about a disenfranchised youth navigating through life in Hong Kong just before the Handover, shot with passion and fury from leftover film reels. This explosive energy runs through Fruit Chan’s independent classic, an essential exploration of a generation (and a nation) struggling through an identity crisis. As we follow the story and the daily struggles of a young delinquent who falls in love with a sick teenage girl, we’re brought into a world that is as vital now as it was when it was first released in 1997. This new 4K digital restoration gives audiences new and old an opportunity to (re) discover this contemporary and urgent classic.
