Keep Rolling by Man Lim-chung will open 16th Osaka Asian Film Festival (Japan) which will take place on screen from March 5th – 14th and online from February 28th – March 20th (selected films from previous editions).
About the festival:
The Osaka Asian Film Festival (OAFF) aims to facilitate human resources development and exchange, to invigorate the Osaka economy, and to increase the city’s appeal, through providing opportunities to watch excellent Asian films, supporting filmmaking in Osaka and attracting filmmakers from Asian countries and regions to Osaka.
Marking its 16th edition this year, OAFF, under programming director TERUOKA Sozo (暉峻創三), will again select high-quality Asian films. The Competition section, which receives increased recognition every year, will again select films previously unreleased in Japan. The Indie Forum section, special programs and other sections will also feature a wide variety of excellent Asian films.
“Keep Rolling” is a deeply personal portrait of the celebrated filmmaker Ann HUI. It spans seven decades of her life and features a wealth of archive footage, photos, and interviews with friends, family, and major players in the international film industry. Acting as our guide is Ann HUI herself, an effervescent presence who delivers humorous and honest looks at her background, career, and private life as she takes in all of her artistic and commercial highs as well as the crushing lows and personal sacrifices she has experienced as part of her unwavering dedication to cinema and her continual exploration of Hong Kong life. “Keep Rolling” was one of five films named as a Film of Merit at the Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards 2020.
Date: March 5th (Friday) | Umeda Burg 7: Theater 6
