When I Get Home, My Wife Always Pretends to be Dead 
Director: Toshio Lee
Japan | 2017 | 115 minutes | In Japanese, with Chinese & English subtitles | DCP | Colour

20/9 (Thur) 8pm
22/9 (Sat) 7:30pm

Jun returns home one night after a hard day to find his wife, Chie, collapsed near the door in a pool of blood. Panicking, he rushes to her side, but then notices a bottle of ketchup nearby. “Tee-hee-hee”, Chie giggles in a feigned unconscious state. “Did I scare ya?” When Jun, relieved, demands a reason for her foolishness, Chie can only laugh teasingly. And so it begins. From that point on, every time Jun returns home, he finds her “dead” by different and increasingly outlandish causes. Jun begins to worry when she never really gives him a reason. Is she bored? Sad? Is it a cry for help?
 


Border (Preview Screening)

Director: Ali Abbasi
Cast: Eva Melander, Eero Milonoff, Matti Boustedt
Sweden, Denmark | 2018 | 102 minutes | In Swedish with Chinese & English subtitles | DCP | Colour

21/9 (Fri) 8pm (PREVIEW)
23/9 (Sun) 7:30pm (PREVIEW)

Customs officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It’s almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone hiding something. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever. Tina can sense Vore is hiding something she can’t identify. Even worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realizes the truth about herself. Tina, like Vore, does not belong to this world. Her entire existence has been one big lie and now she has to choose: keep living the lie or embrace Vore’s terrifying revelations.

22/9 (Sat) 4pm
23/9 (Sun) 4pm
24/9 (Mon) 8pm

Ms Tsui (Jo Koo) is a music teacher in a special education needs (SEN) school, who is not able to switch to a mainstream school due to stereotyping and labelling; Zoey (Jennifer Yu) is an underachiever from a Band 1 school, who is struggling for the coming public examination; Ka Ho (Kaki Sham) is a rebellious teenager from a Band 3 school, who idles away his time and doesn’t care about his handicapped little brother…… When being assigned to helm a musical performance, Ms Tsui has to bite the bullet while juggling between work and personal issues; for the sake of earning higher school credit, Zoey volunteers in an extracurricular musical; to avoid being expelled, Ka Ho has no choice but to attend a musical in a SEN school. Three individuals take part in a musical they deem worthless for their own purposes, which turns out to be a journey of self-discovery towards their dreams and goals.

Hong Kong | 2017 | 91 minutes | In Cantonese, With English (in parts) with Chinese and English subtitles | DCP | Colour

Does a person need nobility of the soul to be a great artist? Renowned HK artist Wong Yan-kwai says, "I'm a born painter, so I paint.” His famous line is: When you are used to poverty, you don't feel poor. In the interaction of Wong Yan-kwai and Director Angie, sparks and arguments, egos and humility, love and betrayal, and human complexities surface.
