This controversial independent film was released in December 2015. It consists of five thought-provoking shorts imagining what Hong Kong would be like ten years in the future, with human rights and freedoms gradually diminishing. The film seeks to evoke the feelings of some young people in Hong Kong towarded what they see as an ever-increasing influence from mainland China over the city.
Mainland state television channels and major internet sites were prohibited from broadcasting the 35th Annual Hong Kong Film Awards live last month as this film had been nominated for Best Film. The film then did indeed win the Best Film Award.
A member of the production team is in the process of being arranged to introduce the film, which was 104 minutes in length. The movie is in Cantonese with English and Chinese subtitles.
