放映 / SCREENINGS

We regularly organize screenings at our Studio and other venues, both showing our own and others' films made by or on youth. The screenings are friendly events allowing people to mingle, discuss, have a drink and get to know people's stories from different regions of the world.

 

我們定期在工作室和各種場地舉辦電影展映,當中包括我們拍攝的影片以及其他導演拍攝關於青年的影片。我們的放映會輕鬆而開放,觀眾可以在放映后的酒會交流討論,一起分享來自世界各地不同的故事。

 

12.12.2016 FILM SCREENING:

Katzenball 愛她愛她

The past 70 years in Switzerland as told from the perspective of a hidden minority: the history – and personal accounts – of lesbians, their relationships and international networks, their search for an identity and for meeting places. A narrative of their political struggle, masquerades and subculture in this country. Supplemented by well-known footage from films and television, the film portrays five women from different generations, giving us an insight into their lives and allowing us to see life “on the other side” in a different light.

This film screening is part of 1905 Hong Kong Human Rights Film Festival and sponsored by the Consulate General of Switzerland in Hong Kong.

12.12.2016 FILM SCREENING:
Our School 我們的學校 

Our School follows three Roma (commonly known as "Gypsy") children in a rural Transylvanian village who are among the pioneer participants in an initiative to integrate the ethnically segregated Romanian schools. When their school is desegregated, Alin, Benjamin, and Dana set out for the city school, optimistic for education and new friendships, even as funds earmarked for integration are questionably used to build a "Roma-only" school in their village. Their innocent optimism quickly sours when the children are met with low expectations and further isolation.

 

Shot over four years, the filmmakers' tender portrait of rural village life and its rhythms fosters an intimacy in the children's profound reality and admiration for their indomitable spirit, punctuated by shocking instances of prejudice and ignorance. Their story touches on issues ranging from institutionalized racism, public education, and the intractability of poverty, culminating in an outrageous finale that cements the Roma children's struggle in the annals of egregious human rights violations. “Our School” is an absorbing, infuriating, and ultimately bittersweet story of tradition and progress.

10.12.2016 FILM SCREENING:
Lotus 
小荷

Synopsis: A young, freethinking teacher named Lotus seems a rebel in the eyes of her rigid colleagues. After having been expulsed by the school for her relationship with a married man, she decided to leave the small town for Beijing. But very soon she finds out that what she has to tell in the newspaper is a lie. In trouble again, she has to work as a waitress in a bar and sleep in a tiny underground room. A rich man falls in love with her but she doesn’t love him back. Before she makes her decision to accept his love, a policeman who believes she’s a prostitute tries to rape her. Dreams broken, she faces two choices: continue suffering, or give up what she was looking for to obtain a life with material comforts.

This film screening is part of 1905 Hong Kong Human Rights Film Festival and sponsored by the Consulate General of Switzerland in Hong Kong.

24.10.2016 DOCUMENTARY SCREENING:
310 TUNG CHAU STREET
通州街叄佰壹拾號

Directed by Hong Kong filmmaker Jo Cheng, this 28' film was shot in Sham Shui Po in 2016.
Director's Statement:  One night in 310 Tung Chau Street, a subdivided flat in an old building buried in the poorest district of Hong Kong, two novice filmmakers came to witness a curious incidence of Vietnamese refugees in conflict and investigated by the police. This is an experimental short that explores the nature of ‘reality’ in documentary filmmaking, where the filmmakers question their own philosophy and practice in documentary.

2014 WU WEN-GUANG'S HONG KONG FOLK MEMORY PROJECT

DOCUMENTARY WORKSHOP AND SCREENING

吳文光: 香港民間記憶計畫: 紀錄片創作工作坊

Curated by Ying Liang, this project is originated from “Folk Memory Project” established by Cao Chang Di Workstation in 2010, which aims to create folk memory archives.

The goal of “Hong Kong Folk Memory Project” is to go back to the ordinary memory.

The Documentary Workshop is led by the director Wu Wen-guang.
