Four microfilms produced under "Behind the Stories – Communities Care Project" were premiered at a cinema in Diamond Hill on December 1. The premiere brought together over 200 people, including children under juvenile protection as well as their families, members of Senior Police Call and Junior Police Call, non-ethnic Chinese students and social workers across Kowloon East (KE) Region.
For the first time, Wong Tai Sin, Sau Mau Ping, Kwun Tong and Tseung Kwan O Districts worked with the Hong Kong Playground Association to run the project, with the assistance of the Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education. Officers helped the participants film their life stories to promote crime prevention messages, law-abiding values and positive life attitudes.
Speaking at the premiere, KE Regional Commander Cheung Ching encouraged young people to embrace their future, and hoped they would bear in mind a Chinese idiom, "Study is like sailing against the current; either you keep forging ahead or you keep falling behind." She urged them to work hard and strive to live a wonderful life.
The four microfilms remind all to beware of the serious consequences of drug trafficking, the authenticity of information in cyberspace, the importance of positive communication between children and parents, and having a vision to care for the people around us. After the premiere, the microfilms will be broadcast in primary and secondary schools in the Region.
