Silence ça pousse ! – France 5

2017 ended in style for Hong Kong a la Carte, fixing 2 episodes of the popular french show Silence, ça pousse ! in Hong Kong.
We helped the production company with a storyline, shooting logistics (filming authorizations, transportation arrangements, filming schedule) and participants’ recommendations.

The first episode focuses on Hong Kong History and traditions. Stephanie did a brilliant job talking about the territory’s history, traditional Chinese gardens and showing the team around Tai O. This episode’s synopsis includes:

  • Sally Bunker opens the doors to her workshop where she passionately draws local plants in order to make an inventory of the Hong Kong flora.
  • In place of an old shantytown, a traditional Chinese garden has been built. While strolling through the garden, we learn how plants and buildings were chosen and used following Feng Shui principals.
  • Herbs and few delicacies form the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Profusely used in Hong Kong, it has nonetheless been “modernized” to cure today’s ailments…
  • With Patrick Blanc, a French celebrity botanist, we discover plants growing on the Peak, not far from the city center.

The second episode features Stephane, Carole and Patrick Blanc, a French botanist, researcher and inventor of the vegetable wall (he has built more than 300 walls over the world). They discuss how the local flora cohabits with Hong Kong urbanism (concrete and buildings). This episode’s synopsis includes:

    • Rooftop gardening
    • Urban farming at Hysan Place
