Private Project

容容 Yung Yung (2017)

Through following the footsteps and capturing the hard work of the street cleaner Yung-yung, who pushes a trolley shuttling between alleys, we see not only the beautiful lush valleys, soaring mountains and stilt houses in the 'Oriental Venice' - Tai O, but also another type of energy, charisma and laughters from this, one of the few remaining traditional fishing villages in Hong Kong.
