Hong Kong film : 四

Short url: 

https://squ.at/r/7dng

As the struggle in Hong Kong goes on we’re going to watch some political and a-bit-less-political films from there, all filmed since the handover from Britain to China. We can also chat after the films about the current situation, the powerful solidarity being displayed by very different parts of society, the complex political demands, and the interesting wave of tactics over the recent years.

Films in Joe’s are on Sunday 6th and 13th. There will also be films in the Budapest, Pesthuislaan in Oud West on Fridays 11th and 25th. All open at 20:00 with the film starting at 20:30.

The fourth film we’ll watch (25th at the Budapest) was made almost five years ago. Five directors were asked to make a film about how Hong Kong would be in 2025. Independent filmmaking with this degree of inflamatory content is unheard of in Hong Kong, and it did cause quite a stir particularly among the more political conscious and restless members of Hong Kong society, due to the often disturbing visions that its makers have offered up.
