New Territories, named after and partially set in the northernmost area of Hong Kong, which borders Mainland China, combines and tries to juxtapose two tales, a more straightforward story involving a French businesswoman on a trip to Hong Kong to promote an unusual funeral product and that of an extremely unfortunate, female Chinese garment-factory worker.
New Territories is both daring and revealing. First-time French director Fabianny Deschamps combines fiction and documentary in her semi-experimental film that follows two women from different worlds.
