The Coffee Shop – The film “Hong Kong Strong” and Director’s Commentary

The Coffee Shop is an open thread-style discussion forum for human interest news of the day.

From Brandon Li:

A deep dive into the many layers of Hong Kong. A film about the madness and beauty of this seemingly impossible city in the days leading up to Chinese New Year.  And an exploration of my own Cantonese heritage.

Behind-the-scenes about my short film Hong Kong Strong. How it was made, why it was made, what gear was used.


This is an open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments.  If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet.  Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.

  2. Good morning, Nona! I loved all of it, especially the scenes of wing chun on the parapet high over the city, which took my breath away.
