Hong Kong film : 四
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.
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.
