第38届香港国际电影节

Local Hong Kong film Dot 2 Dot had its world premiere at the 38th Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) at The Grand Cinema this evening, with the producer KWONG Pui Si, director Amos WHY and cast in attendance to greet the audience. After the success of Adam WONG's The Way We Dance in the 37th HKIFF, Dot 2 Dot is again a 100% local film that explores pressing issues of urban change, cultural history and collective memory in Hong Kong.

Director Amos WHY, born and bred in Hong Kong, has experienced the best of times in the 70s and 80s, but is acutely aware of how Hong Kong's economic success story has meant rapid change for its people. He said, "The idea of Dot 2 Dot actually has its roots back in the 1990s. It's only now I have recognised that change has been so rapid, that as a society we have started to forget the past. I hope to remind the audience of the importance of the past through telling the story of Hong Kong."

Moses CHAN said, "I am honored to be invited by Amos to be in his film, and I also believe that I share several common features with my character in the film. The changes of this city have been swift and absolute. So I am very much acting myself as Chung in the film, to a certain extent."

MENG Ting-Yi may not yet be a household name in Hong Kong, but Dot 2 Dot definitely marks her first step into the Hong Kong film industry. On her role as a Putonghua teacher in the film, she said, "I think the way the two main characters interact with each other is really romantic. It's wonderful that the film is receiving such a warm welcome from the audience, and I hope to have more chances to participate in film productions in Hong Kong."

The 38th HKIFF will be held from 24 March 2014 to 7 April 2014, with over 300 titles from 56 countries and regions, 88 of which are world, international or Asian premieres.
