Hong Kong Film Festival: Still Human scoops three awards

The film explores the relationship between a paralysed man and a Filipina caregiver who gives up her dream to earn a living.

    The Hong Kong International Film Festival - considered the most prestigious of Asia's red carpet events - is Hong Kong's equivalent of the Oscars.

    Showcasing the latest Chinese blockbusters, the awards have a reputation for challenging censorship in Hong Kong.

    This year, a film that sheds light on the hardships faced by migrant workers in Asia - Still Human - was a favourite, winning three awards.

    Al Jazeera's Sarah Clarke reports from Hong Kong.
