Tête-bêche

Luther Ng | Hong Kong|2017|78 min|Colour|HD
In Cantonese with Chinese & English subtitles

Time: 6th April (Fri), 7:30pm & 9:30pm

In philately, tête-bêche (head-to-tail) is used to refer to a pair of generic stamps which is inverted in relation to one another, either through a printing error or intentionally. The stamps are of special value only when they are unseparated. Metaphorically, tête-bêche can precisely reflected the portrayed family’s tricky situation, that different role-plays or value judgments can lead to sparkling tension among family members, yet somehow the old saying of ‘blood is thicker than water’ prevails.

An overwhelming 2014 social movement in Hong Kong has devastated many families in the city.

Sai Hoi is father of the Suen family. As a journalist, Sai Hoi wants to safeguard his neutrality, but the souring relations between police and citizens, as well as police and reporters, are also posing increasing pressure for him to uphold his ideal. His son, Yau Wai envisages his job as a police merely a ‘stepping stone’ for a more promising future career. Nevertheless, it is crystal clear for Yau Wai that is he himself is a law-enforcing agent. Ironically, his younger sister Wai Yu, who is still studying at university, is an outspoken social movement activist. The trios in the Suen family are caught off-guard by the teasing of Moerae, or the goddess of destiny.

Resettlement Memory
Lee Kwok-wai| Hong Kong | 6’37″| Col
In Cantonese with English subtitles

A fire in the 1950s destroyed the entire cottage area. In the seven-storey government resettlement block for the victims, it is not uncommon for a family of five to live together in a mere 200 square feet flat. Accustomed to quantifying income, population, and land supply, how should we quantify the process whereby a flat transforms into a home?

Who Cares

The story starts with a city and its Disneyland. Once they meet each other, Disney takes over and the city begins to transform from a diversified metropolitan into a monotonous theme park. With the city losing its historical and cultural values, it is now Disneyland and its city.

Taste the Life
Tsui Ka-hei, Haze | Hong Kong | 3’ | Colour
In Cantonese with no subtitles

Get away from the bustles
Let the music of leisure float
Even it’s insignificantly short
A cup of Slurpee and a jazz song
Simple yet carry life long
And joy is everywhere we want

Puff the Magic Dragon
Ho Ka-ho, Tsui Ka-hei | Hong Kong | 5’ | Colour
No dialogue and subtitles

Wandering aimlessly in a state of loneliness and confusion
Crawling through a decadent life
Floating in between reality and simulation
Searching unconsciously
The self I see is the seeing self
A vicious cycle

* With after-screening discussion
