Voices of the diverse ethnic young people of Hong Kong. 

 

 

 

Hong Kong has an ethnic non-Chinese population of about 3%, excluding foreign domestic
helpers. This population includes Indian, Pakistani, Nepalese, Filipinos, Indonesians and
Thais. The largest of this population is the South Asian community.

 

 

As part of raising awareness of the ethnic diversity within the larger Hong Kong community
we have initiated a social media campaign to celebrate and tell positive stories of the
younger generations who call Hong Kong their home.

 

 

This is a collaborative project founded and led by Anjali Nihalchand, Pollination Projects,
with the support of Hannah Bent, Creative Partner, Daniel Murray Studios, Head of
Photography and Video, and other contributors including Christie Chan for translation
Melvina Mak for graphics and Mariam Hayat on growing the followers.

Inside Out – The Documentary

Four courageous young adults who have Down syndrome discover independence through performance.

 

Over the period of five years, Hannah has followed four young performers with Down syndrome as they strive to achieve their dreams. In 2013, the group were given the opportunity to work with Kirsty Fromholtz and the Sydney Creative Movement to present an integrated performance called ‘Inside Out’ at the Sydney Fringe Festival.

 

The ups and downs, triumphs and heartbreaks are revealed as our young adults work towards the opening night of their show. Each performer pursues greater independence and integration within the community, as well as their goals as artists.

 

Ability is redefined in this uplifting documentary as we explore what it means to live with a disability and the social, cultural and personal implications of this.
