For the past five years, Lin has looked after the son (Yo-yu) and elderly mother (Mrs. Chou) of his deceased boyfriend (Li-wei), living together like a family. It is Lin’s way of remembering Li-wei — by continuing to be in the life he once had and loving the people he once loved. But when Mrs. Chou passes away, her other son (Li-gang) returns from overseas and discovers that Mrs. Chou’s property was transferred to Yo-yu, who has been legally adopted by Lin. Li-gang contacts the police, accusing Lin of killing his mother. As the ensuing investigation continues, more and more evidence mounts against Lin…

27/4 (Tue) 8pm

On a buzzing red carpet, a 70-year-old short-haired woman strides towards the stage with confidence. Behind the red carpet, it’s a muddy path that leads to a movie studio in New Territories, Hong Kong. To her, glory and hardship are nothing more than just different paths that lead to the world of cinema.
Born in Northeastern China, raised in Macau and educated in Hong Kong, Ann Hui stays true to her cultural heritage as a Chinese, yet she has always been fascinated by Western literature and therefore decided to further her studies in London. Eventually, she found movies. Through movies, she becomes fully immersed into the ‘East-meets-West’ culture and lifestyle of Hong Kong; She reconciles with her distant mother; And she gets to explore the cultural and social identity of her and the city she calls home. Movies also found her.

Having learned from veteran auteur King Hu, her directorial debut became part of the impetus behind Hong Kong’s New Wave as she explores marginalized characters in her movies. 40 years have passed, Ann Hui experienced numerous ups and downs in her career, but the turn of the tide has never threatened her dedication and integrity towards movies. Her works embody her humanistic concerns and deep interests for the people of Hong Kong. On the lonely journey of discovery, her life is now full because of movies.

28/4 (Wed) 8pm

Kiyokazu and Satoko Kurihara, a couple who had given up on having children, learned about a system called "special adoption" and welcomed a baby boy into their family. Six years had passed since then and the couple spent their days happily watching their son, Asato, grow up. One day, out of the blue, a woman named Hikari Katakura called them claiming to be Asato’s birth mother. "I want my child back, and if I can’t have him, then I want compensation." They had met Hikari only once. She was only 14 years old at the time, but she was a kind-hearted girl who entrusted Satoko with a letter to her unborn child. In the midst of swirling doubts, a young woman shows up at their door but this woman had no resemblance to the young girl they had met 6 years ago. Who is this woman and what is she after?
