Looking for Wong Kar-Wai (2018-19) is a project that revisits and rethinks about his films and the changing of Hong Kong. His films always show a longing for the passing by situation with people, and are about encounters and loss. It’s a filmic work which tries to document Hong Kong through the films and to link that with the past and present, with the team of Li Zhenhua, Chen Xiao, Shen Xiaomin, and Sampo Sarkola. This program was showned at Louis Koo Cinema, Hong Kong Arts Centre.
A selection of short films was shown at Louis Koo Cinema, Hong Kong Arts Centre, including Ellen Pau's She Moves (1988), Wong Ping's The Modern Way to Shower (2019), Tromarama's The Charade (2014) and Zheng Bo's Pteridophilia I (2016). Courtesy to Edouard Malingue Gallery.
