This student-produced documentary, which won the top prize Wiseman Education’s ThinkSeries Video Competition (Junior Secondary Division), is about two elderly men, Mr. Wong (a hawker) and Mr. Ng (a shopkeeper) who, in their devotion to their work, show faith in themselves. We’d like to thank Mr. Wong and Mr. Ng for giving us their time and sharing their views with us.
The students were all in Form 3 (Grade 9) when they produced this video. The video is also published on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/10173600).
Information about the competition can be found at the Think Series website (http://www.thinkseries.org/).
