Film Screening "35th of May"

Charity & Causes

To mark the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, this event is a screening of Lee Chung Chau's "35th of May".

"Another year has just passed. Octogenarians Siu Lum and Ah Dai are afflicted with the usual ailments of old age. They await death--a natural occurrence that is a part of life. But 30 years ago, their son Chit met an unnatural death. Even today, many unanswered questions still surround the incident. Siu Lum looks forward to being released from those bitter years lost searching for accountability. On the other hand, Ah Dai, who had been cowardly for years, grows all the more impetuous. Decades ago, he avoided such conflicts, concerned only about preparing for their future. With his spouse now staring death in the face, what is left to fear? The two set an ambitious goal: On May 35th, they'll hold a proper gravesite ritual for their son."

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film's producer, Lit Ming Wai, and a reception with light refreshments.
