SHORT FILM "FAR FROM HOME" 《執屋》
Finalist at 15th Fresh Wave International Short Film Festival, Hong Kong
In autumn 2019, at the peak of the anti-extradition law amendment bill movement, Yung and Yin meet on the streets. After the arrest of Yung, Yin finds herself in the awkward situation of visiting Yung’s home for the first time. Meeting the parents, Yin has to skip the usual polite chatter and put away Yung’s items before the court warrant arrives. In this austere and awkward first meeting, they talk about the absent son. The long night drags on as the shocked and worried parents are overwhelmed by the opposing political views, by relationships torn and healed, by their hopes and regrets. When dawn comes, what will become of Yung?
