Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story - Jason Scott Lee (1993) - Tsuen Wan Chinese Permanent Cemetery, Tsuen Wan

For the scene for Bruce's dad's funeral, we return to a familiar cemetery for this blog. It's the
Tsuen Wan Chinese Permanent Cemetery that was seen previously in Yellowthread Street and also Contagion.

On this occasion we see the eastern slope overlooking the Tsuen Wan Road. Again, this is another scene where the director didn't seem too fussed about the buildings in the background because we get a quick glimpse of the Chun Shing factory building on the opposite side of Tsuen Wan Road.

In reality, Bruce's dad is buried not too far from this location (about 3km away) at the St Raphael's Catholic Cemetery in Cheung Sha Wan. I actually went there not too long ago to visit the grave and I suppose these terraced graveyards are quite similar in appearance given the geographical constraints of Hong Kong.
