Crystal Wong (b. 1994) is an independent visual journalist based in Hong Kong, formerly in the United States. She enjoys the documentary process as she feels that the camera can lead her into experiences she wouldn’t otherwise have had.
In 2019, she returned to Hong Kong to document the largest pro-democracy protests the city has ever seen. After filming a documentary about the lives of these frontline protesters, she developed a strong interest in long-form documentaries.
She is currently working on two long-form documentaries. One for VICE documentary program The Source questioning what is left of the crumbling judicial system in Hong Kong. She is also directing a documentary for The Initium about Hongkongers leaving their homeland.
