Hong Kong Daughters

i know what you're thinking, didn't you already make a chinese daughters list?? hk still chinese right?

well.. u right, but also wrong!

hong kongers are chinese, but hong kong is not china. especially when comparing their cinemas, hong kong is nothing like china. where in the mainland the reason such themes get amplified is down to censorship, regulation, cultural differences, etc., all of which HK generally doesn't have, it is that freedom they have in comparison, while sharing the same baseline of being ethnically/culturally chinese, that's allowed them to explore the same themes much more directly.

HK cinema wasn't completely free of censorship (it certainly isnt now..), but they generally were allowed to do just about anything. that's how…
