310 Tung Chau Street – this is where the tiny room located at the poorest area in Hong Kong. Numerous conflicts arise among the three refugees residing in the narrow and difficult space. Two documentary newbies go through setbacks and predicament during the shooting, which leads the two reflect on “the reality of documentaries”.
The boundary between documentaries and drama films is ever blurring. Combining elements of documentaries, dramas and experiment films, this “documentary about documentaries” presents a trivial event by a group of unusual people. The crew also show themselves reflecting on the relationships among film makers and the people being filmed and eventually, the nature of documentary as a genre.
