Moon is a high-school dropout and small-time hoodlum who resents his absentee father and his succession of mistresses from China. Moon is friends with the half-witted Sylvester (Wenders Li Tung-chuen) and harbors puppy love for the severely ill Ping (Neiky Yim Hui-chi), but amid their hopeless existence, all three struggle to find meaning.
Made in Hong Kong forms the first part of Fruit Chan Gor's "1997 Trilogy" — whose other components are The Longest Summer and Little Cheung — and is shot with a rawness and urgency that would in time become the writer-director's signature.

The 40th Asian American International Film Festival runs from July 26 to August 5 with screenings at Asia Society and Cinema Village East.
The Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) premiered in the summer of 1978 in New York City answering a growing need for social understanding, cultural diversity in American life, and independent cinema. AAIFF is the first festival in the U.S. to showcase film and video work by artists of the Asian Diaspora. Forty years later, the AAIFF has grown to include films and video from more than 30 countries, a variety of topical panels and workshops, industry mixers, staged readings, exclusive interviews, receptions and more.
Presented with Asian CineVision, Cinema Village, and Flushing Town Hall.
