Flowing Stories

Tsui-shan Jessey Tsang

2014 / 97 minutes / Production : 24 images, River Vision Ltd, Hong Kong Arts Centre

As the Ho Chung village in the New Territories prepares for village festivities, we are shown the life and times of an 80-year-old matriarch whose extended family reveals how, in the ’50s and ’60s, many locals scattered to Europe for work. It is also a story about one poor rural village and its transformation from tradition to modernity. Now, this tiny place has blood relations in France, Holland and the UK.
