Blue IslandDirected by Chan Tze-woon
The city of Hong Kong has lived through a tumultuous history. It continues to be the center of protests, movement, and other battles. Rebellions have been fought throughout the generations and despite years of struggle to preserve their freedoms, citizens continue to defend their beliefs. Three characters speak of their fight as Hongkongers in interviews interwoven with dramatic retellings and archival footage. Separated by age, Hong Kong’s citizens are united by a cause. This intergenerational film is an expansive tapestry that encompasses their vision and dreams for a beloved though complex place.
Director Chan Tze-woon and producer Peter Yam expected to attend.
This screening is co-presented by the Northern California Hong Kong Club.
