Description

Q&A to follow with filmmakers

At an international school in Hong Kong, a high school girl spreads a video sexualizing her childhood friend and classmate. In this neon depiction of Hong Kong youth, CLIQUE BAIT features Asian teens as you’ve never seen them before. Attending a Western international school in a once colonized country, CLIQUE BAIT’s characters are constantly caught between East and West, traditional and liberal, and past and future as they navigate the universal growing pains that come with being a teenage girl.
