嘉宾对话 Online Panel





We live in reality, yet we are not content with it. Since its advent, film has been offering its audience a filmic reality with fictionality and fantasy. Cinematic images, in turn, take part in the construction of individual dream, desire and sexuality. Cinema, then, blurs reality and fantasy, fiction and non-fiction. Subsequently, by reflecting and distorting our desires, it reorients our understanding of interpersonal and sexual relationships. Here, the emphasis on imagery raises questions about non-visual factors that also affect our perception of reality and sexual experience. With novel representational techniques entering the media realm trying to grasp the underrepresented, the manner in which fiction and non-fiction will evolve and continue to impact our notion of reality remains unknown.


Ahead of its time, the 2002 film Let’s Love Hong Kong offers an insight into the dynamic between imagery and reality, as well as the dilemma of modernized human interaction. Writer, director Yau Ching will join us as guest speaker to talk about her critical engagement with the issue from a perspective of gender and sexuality within the East Asian context.

Around That Winter, Wang Xiao Zhen

大约在冬季,周青随王晓振来到翟家庄村见父母,他们遇到了满嘴脏话的男孩永顺,遇到了一脸困惑 的女童子歌,遇到了健忘的老人奶奶,遇到了无所事事的青年小胡,他们似乎不知道要做什么。但他们都自得其乐。而周青和王晓振一直在等待迟迟不来的父母,除 此之外他们觉着做什么都没意思。

Qing Zhou and Xiaozhen Wang came to Huojiacun to visit Wang’s parents at the end of winter. They met the foul-mouthed boy Yongshun, the confused girl Zige, the forgetful old lady Grandma, and also Xiaohu, who knew nothing but hanging out. All of them enjoyed their lives purely without any targets. Meanwhile, Wang and Zhou felt nothing interested while waiting for the parents, who never showed their faces.

Female Directors, Yang MingMing


Ah-Ming and Yueyue are two out-of-work film school grads living in Beijing who decide to turn the camera on each other and make a film about their lives. While it purports to be the true story of two women filming themselves, Female Directors constantly reminds us of the process that has gone into making it. It is a genre-bending, self-aware piece of experimental filmmaking.





Born in 1989 in ZhaiJiaZhuang Village, Linqu, Shandong Province. Currently lives and works in Beijing. He runs a small advertising company with his friend Li Yang. He has made several low-cost movies. Although the production is rough but sincere, the calligraphy is not good and cannot sell money. Time may also be spent making movies and writing, like playing basketball.
