"Alan wakes up marooned on a mysterious island filled with rubbish. He thinks all is lost until he runs into a group of hooded strangers... "
This is a short film directed and produced by Edwin Lee, with the aim of promoting the cause of environmental awareness in Hong Kong. The film is made for the 'For Good Film Project', an initiative to pair filmmakers and local NGOs to collaborate and produce films that are both creative and engaging to the public.
The average Hong Konger disposes of 1.36kg of waste daily - one of the highest rates in the world. The city is also quickly running out of landfill space and our appetite for single-use plastic consumption, such as bottles, bags and packaging, shows no sign of slowing down. Part of this rubbish also ends up in the ocean and washes up on our shores resulting in environmental degradation and a public eyesore.
Hong Kong Cleanup / 清潔香港 is an NGO dedicated to environmental protection and organises regular beach cleanups. You can also sign up a team on their website.
