"An extremely strong film... dreamlike, enchanting, magnetic and moving… the polar opposite of what we usually see" - Christophe Foltzer, Ecran Large
"… director Fabianny Deschamps invites us first and foremost on a journey to the limits of reality, in that fragile space that separates it from fantasy, where spirits and the living co-exist for better and worse." Christophe Foltzer - Ecran Large
"Daring and revealing"; "Bitoun is a mesmerizing presence throughout" - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
New Territories is a journey of initiation through faith and beliefs on the border between life and death. Two women poles apart, two paths: one is a living French businesswoman; the other is a Chinese textile worker. While Li Yu is preparing herself to reach Hong Kong clandestinely in search for a better life, Eve is conquering the Asian market with a new funeral rite.
New Territories is a fairytale that unfolds in a contemporary world of rationality and market economy.
