Pineapple

A 10-episode coming-of-age web series about cultural identity in Hong Kong.

In Hong Kong, an overachieving student tries to gain the attention of her favorite celebrity by converting her school’s charity fashion show into a flashy display of Hong Kong culture, but gets accused of being too westernized. Fueled by pineapple buns and Cantonese soap operas, she devises a checklist for what it means to be “local” and embarks on a not-so-subtle quest to complete it before the show.

Directed by Jane Chow (USA)
