Description

Follow the decline of Hong Kong cinema in the 90s, Johnnie To has found a way to adapt to the invasion of Hollywood. Creating films for the festival circuit and commercial, To has be economically safe. However, it is To's use of themes that let his stand out compared to his peers. My project is to simulate To's style and storytelling by shooting my own film. Inspired by five To films, I will also add my own flare of creative direction to this film and create a homage to one of the most prolific directors from Asia.
