Watch this short film by Andrew Guthrie which tells the story of Paul Au: how he was smuggled into Hong Kong from wartime Vietnam in the 1970s and how he set up a second-hand vinyl record shop in Sham Shui Po, a low-rent district in north Kowloon, which is still popular today.

The full story — with lots of photos and sample records that show how popular music developed in Hong Kong — is told in Paul’s Records.
