MA work

‘There are many things we cannot choose in life, no one can choose their parents. You have to learn to love them before knowing them.’


My graduation film is about my personal feelings towards Hong Kong and its complicated relationship with China. It expresses what I really want to say and feel at the age of 23, that I love not just my birthplace Hong Kong but my country as well.


The emphasis is not on realistic animation, but on what emerges from the picture itself, reflecting its inner meaning.
