Island in Focus: Cheung Chau

These films were made by aspiring filmmakers in Hong Kong through a program by arts group Visible Record. Since 2013, Visible Record has held an annual master class in documentary film, in which participants have 8 days to complete a short film. These films focus on two island communities in Hong Kong.
