Fruit Chan's Made in Hong Kong

Esther M. K. Cheung

Abstract

This book is about Fruit Chan's film Made in Hong Kong (1997), a tragic coming-of-age story which follows three disillusioned local youths struggling to navigate Hong Kong public housing projects and late adolescence amid violent crime, gang pressure, and broken homes. Shot on a very low budget, the film marked the beginning of Chan's career as an independent film director.

Keywords: public housing projects, adolescence, crime, gang pressure, broken homes, Chan
