A short summary of the project

I'm raising £1000 for my short film project, "Lost Island," an experimental documentary film exploring exploring changes in the city's facade and the attitudes of its citizens around 1997. This film uses a large amount of old footage from the colonial period in Hong Kong, news footage from the 1997 handover between China and the UK, and contemporary real-life footage of Hong Kong society. It aims to resonate with art film lovers, Hong Kong culture enthusiasts, and those interested in immigrant narratives, offering a dream-like documentary experience that weaves time, space, and personal stories.

Your story

"Lost Island" is not just a film; it's a deeply personal exploration into the essence of belonging, memory, and identity. This project is crucial for its unique blend of documentary and poetic narration, inspired by cinematic pioneers. It's important to me because it tells a story that is often felt but rarely voiced. Your contribution will help bring this visually rich, emotionally resonant narrative to an audience that values deep, reflective storytelling, making a significant impact on the discourse around culture and belonging.

Where will the money go?

Estimated breakdown of costs:
  • Location: £150
  • Travel: £650
  • Emergency Fund: £200
