Elegies 18

Part of Chinese Cinema Project
Part of Celebrating Ann Hui
Screened in partnership with Focus Hong Kong
Ann Hui, Hong Kong, China, 2023, 101m.

This screening will be followed by a post film discussion in the Garden Cinema Bar.

The latest work from Ann Hui is a long-cherished passion project that sees the award-winning auteur tackling the subject she holds most dear and which has inspired and consoled her throughout her life - poetry. A deeply personal documentary, Elegies features Hui encountering a series of Hong Kong’s most notable poets, their words reflecting the character, the sights, and the culture of the city, and its many contrasts. Through these intimate conversations, Hui’s literary journey becomes a tale of Hong Kong itself, meditating on its past and present, and on its enduring role as an artistic muse.

This screening is a joint presentation by the Chinese Cinema Project and Focus Hong Kong. In Cantonese with English subtitles.

Canran Huang, Wai-Tong Liu, Ah-Lam Deng
