Fly Me to the Moon

A pair of sisters face discrimination and poverty after immigrating from Hunan to Hong Kong in this Stanley Kwan-produced award winner

Based on her semi-autobiographical novel, Sasha Chuk’s multiple-award winning feature debut is a moving family chronicle, following a pair of sisters who relocate from Hunan to Hong Kong in the 90s, faced with identity crisis, poverty and their father’s drug addiction. Produced by Stanley Kwan, the film is a deeply humanistic exploration of immigration and discrimination in Hong Kong, addressing these and other social issues in a grounded manner. While charting change in the city during the twenty years from the 1997 Handover to 2017, Chuk never loses sight of the complex family bonds at the heart of her story or its journey towards a sense of self-realisation and acceptance.
