Hong Kong
2020, 12'

Hong Kong is the place where Simon Liu grew up and the director’s relationship with the region – which has been the site of protests with the People’s Republic of China – permeates this film. From the small pleasures to images of recent events, it all works as a tribute  or as a call to attention.

A film of small things, memories, details of a land that, in the midst of a social upheaval, is gradually losing the memory of its past while facing the uncertainties of the moment. Hong Kong has demonstrated a capacity for resilience that the director tries to honor, with enormous sensitivity and subtlety, in a sound and visual composition that elevates to poetry the public spaces and people’s daily lives.
