《亂世備忘》

STNOPSIS 電影大綱

28. SEP – 15. DEC. 2014, Hong Kong.

When Umbrella Movement happened two years ago; when tens of thousands took on the streets of Hong Kong in fight of democracy, student leaders had become the heart of the civil disobedient movement and public attention. But Yellowing is not a documentary that celebrates stars and leaders, nor does it give a journalistic account of the movement. Rather it shed light on the nameless, ordinary young people and their most heartfelt emotions. Their frustration, timidity and sadness- all but to be channeled away in wits and determination. The film is composed of 20 memorandum, each recording a different aspect of the movement. Some being scenes of violence we saw in the news, but more of daily chores, that in the most realistic respect, made this seemingly unrealistic defiance possible. Where there is discord, may we bring harmony; and where there is despair, may we bring hope. With his camera, director Chan Tze-woon had recorded a reminder for his 2014 – the year when he was full of dreams and courage.

2014年秋冬,香港

數萬人佔領街道,以公民抗命的方式爭取民主,最終演變成長達七十九天的雨傘運動。運動充滿希望地開始,冷清地結束,香港人沒有爭取到民主寸進,但中間我們經歷了甚麼呢?這是數個年青人參與抗爭的故事。當日的理想與勇氣,將是我們繼續堅持下去的備忘。

導演 Director:陳梓桓 Chan Tze Woon

One punch shattered Chan Tze-woon’s illusions about the power of the camera and the probity of police, but he won’t stop making films and is hopeful a Hong Kong cinema chain will show his protest movie. (South China Morning Post)
