Fruit Chan's Made in Hong Kong

The generic characteristics and subversion in Made in Hong Kong present a film of timeliness, both as a critical response to commercial genre films and as a self-sufficient narrative film. Chan “grassroots” the world by way of his do-it-yourself model, although he is not always alienated from the industry and the mainstream. Grassrooting the space of flows, involves creating pressure from the grassroots, inserting personal meaning by social actors, and developing autonomous expression and purposive horizontal communities. Fruit Chan achieved this kind of grassrooting and inspired other filmmakers to follow suit.
