2015香港独立电影节(Hong Kong Independent Film Festival 2015)

Four shorts that record the city in different forms and styles.

Ambrose Kwok's Once upon a time in cinema was taken places in cinema, by means of the plots to question the peculiar audience: "ask not what a movie can do for you, ask what you can do for the movie".

Stanley Ng's KwunTong, 32nd May is the first finished work of the 2nd Chinese Independent Filmmaking Fundraising Project. Ng and this crew conducted numerous authentic interviews over the span of five years, just to document the local history and culture together with many walks of life behind the blueprint of Kwun Tong redevelopement, and to fill in the vanishing scenes before the bulldozer comes. Cities are consist of communities. Furthermore, Hong Kong is connected by pedestrian subways. The two following stories that set their main storyline inside tunnels originated from an creative idea of shorts initiated by director Rita Hui in 2014. Participants of the project are required to shoot a drama in any pedestrian subways in Hong Kong, within one night's time. Elegy by Rita Hui is a lament of the city told through the poem "Lamenting a death by drowning"by Liu Zhong Yuan from Tang Dynasty. Spaces of imagination are expanded through a series of body movements, dance and genuine questioning of whether to take the step or not. A Rainly Night by Kaiu Choy takes place in a subway that once connected to Kai Tak Airport in Kowloon City. It portraits a brief encounter between "normal" and "abnormal". Between reality and illusions, should we go on, or should we stay?
