Filmed in the Kowloon Peninsula, Hong Kong Island, New Territories, and other off shore islands in Hong Kong since March 2015, Like Paradise features a young activist from Zimbabwe, a former domestic helper from Thailand, a retired labor from England and Australia, a civil servant in exile from the Republic of Congo, and an unruly prodigal from Bangladesh. It holds a collective narrative that reimagines the past, the present, and the future in diverse perspectives originating in multiple spaces. A constellation of hopes and dreams and nostalgia.
