This event has now passed.

In the past decade, creative writer and academic worker Chow Yiu Fai has witnessed a northbound movement of many fellow cultural practitioners, and maybe, it’s the time to ask the question, “To go, or not to go?”. In this documentation of an academic research project during the years 2014 and 2015, Chow interviews twelve Beijing and Shanghai-based Hongkongers – from the well-known novelist Chan Koon Chung who wrote the “China Trilogy” to a post-90s film student from Peking University. Mirror from heterotopia is a self-reflective journey on (re-)searching cultural identity of otherness, of the multi-opportunities and limitations of creative experiences in the brave new world, and the basic ethics and mission of professionalism in cultural industry. Film is in Cantonese with Chinese and English subtitles. Click here to register.
