Hong Kong has reached a juncture with a growing ethnic minority population including a Nepalese community facing challenges with heroin use. This short film captures the experiences of four Nepalese heroin users and explores the role that caste, gender, religion and migration are having on Nepalese drug users who are currently dropping out of services in Hong Kong or simply not engaging.

Lloyd Belcher has a background in drug treatment as a practitioner before moving into policy and commissioning and then took the leap into academia. While pursuing his Doctorate, he developed a business as a photographer and film maker and draws upon this expertise and interest in researching social issues with visual methods. He calls Hong Kong home after living in this city for thirty-five years.

The screening is only open to HKU students and staff and Q&A with the Director: Lloyd Belcher.
