Col / 44'/ Partially in Cantonese and English with Chinese and English subtitles

Everyday life might not be as mundane as they seem. Stella So's Very Fantastic turns a most common pre-war building in to an imaginative space through her animation. The Chronicle of a Drawing; the Footprints of Time by Wong Cheuk-hin George looks at another everyday life activity - jogging - to explore time and memory. For most Hong Kong families, everyday life inevitably involves domestic helpers to handle all household chores. But for these Filipino or Indonesian helpers, their mundane life might be a struggle itself, as in Chan Ho-lun Freddie's Beautiful Life.
