King of Kowloon
This is about eighty- year- old Tseng Tso-Choi, the self-styled "King of Kowloon", who believes he has an ancestral right to Kowloon and has spent decades in poverty writing about this on the streets of Hong Kong. Using a calligraphy brush, he attacks the public surfaces of Hong Kong with a litany of historical and personal names. Filmed on the eve of Hong Kong's historical handover, this documentary offers a glimpse at a pivotal moment in history and laden with questions about identity--both personal and politcal.
Co-produced and co-directed by Joanne Shen. TRT:29 minutes
