Abstract

The documentary film is entitled 'Myth of Dreams '. The film confronts the issue of Chinese Mainland immigration into Hong Kong. The film looks at several viewpoints, including government agencies, activists and Mainland immigrants in Hong Kong. Chinese immigrants are often overlooked simply because they are Chinese as are all Hong Kong citizens excluding cultural identifiers which lead to discriminative practices. The film investigates the cultural biases and social exclusion these immigrants face at the policy and social level.
