Trapped in the fault lines. Record Hong Kong.
A directorial debut documentary feature by Oscars Best Picture Moonlight producer, Andrew Hevia, Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window is a mysterious and tragicomic documentary of the director himself. To recover from a failed romance back home, Hevia left America to make a film about Art Basel in Hong Kong. On his way, he runs into Hong Kong artists Au Hoi-lam, Chow Chun-fai, Mak Ying-tung, Samson Young, Trevor Young and William Lim amongst others. The film charts his excitedly offbeat journey through this “beautiful, complicated city”, processing and coming to terms with change. It is a subversive and heartfelt exploration of authenticity, alienation and heartbreak, coupled with his curious encounters with Hong Kong artists and their works. Ah! And also that time when he got lost in a shopping mall. Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window was called “the most original and fascinating documentary” of the year by Film Threat and has been featured in Filmmaker Magazine, Art Forum and The New York Times. There will be an online after-screening talk with Andrew Hevia.
