CH 1997, 75 mins. | 4:3 | EN, DE, FR

The film Made in Hong Kong allows glimpses on a Hong Kong shortly before the handover to China in 1997. But rather than focusing on the expected hysteria Luc Schaedler’s documentary debut works towards complexity by allowing six diverse residents to talk about their relationship to the colonial city. Their life stories beautifully mix with the images of the author. The film is a personal portrait of a city in transition and we learn about Hong Kong’s ambiguities and its political and social problems, as well as the uncertainties regarding the time after 1997.
