Blue Island directed by Chan Tze Woon will be screened at the Antenna Documentary Film Festival which will take place from October 14 – 23, 2022.
An elegiac corollary to the fiery documentaries that captured Hong Kong’s recent protest movement and ensuing crackdown, this Hot Docs winner looks at the state of the region in the wake of the 2020 national security law; a time when many pro-democracy protestors have either fled into exile or are sitting in custody. These bitter, hard years are compared to a longer history of Hong Kong as a site of refuge from mainland Chinese authority, particularly for those who fled the Cultural Revolution and Tiananmen Square. Mixing documentary footage and fictional recreations of the student protestors, Director Chan Tze-Woon grapples honestly with the fact that, despite valiant efforts, Hong Kong as we once knew it is no more.
