Yip Yuen-ching

Col / 13' 40" / In Cantonese with Chinese and English subtitles

Fifty years after Handover, Hong Kong media is under surveillance by the government. Familiar places turn foreign and strange. Cheung Jing, with her team OXYGEN, challenges the authority, and tries to awaken others to what is happening around. Her yearning for freedom is like a distant dream.

Artist’s Statement

We live in an era of information.
We speak up from our respective positions,
But with the constraints from reality,
Words are rarely loyal to our thoughts.
Only in the cinematic world
Could our inner thoughts be finally revealed.
Even though it remains a fictional universe,
It is more real than anything around us.
