Presented by Bonnie Chan and Joyce Nga Yu Lee
Bonnie and Joyce were born in 1984. Their life experience has spun across five decades and two millenniums. They call two places 6000 miles apart home. There should be a myriad of heritage to reference and relate to, yet what exactly is a “Hong Konger”?
Only when Hong Kongers decolonised from the British Empire did they realise the gradual colonisation by another one. From Canto pop to char siu buns to masks and yellow hard hats, Bonnie and Joyce are the last of their kind, if they don’t tell their stories, now, they will never be told.
‘Last of Our Kind’ was seed commissioned by CPT.
