“Making a movie is a bit like losing your virginity; it’s harder than you think, it’s not as pleasant and you’re going to see a lot of blood”.
A crew of filmmakers shoot undercover on the streets of Hong Kong with hidden microphones and no permits. The city becomes a giant set as mounting tension and ego clashes push tempers to breaking point.
Prayers to the Gods of Guerrilla Filmmaking is a raw fly-on-the-wall indie documentary following six twenty-somethings, with no money, but big dreams, in Hong Kong to shoot a feature film. It’s also a story of artistic integrity in the face of adversity, and the struggle to realise a lifelong dream in an intoxicating city thousands of miles from home.
