About the experimental screenings

The film Blue Moon is separated into five parts, respectively labeled “red”, “orange”, “yellow”, “green” and “blue”. These parts can be presented in different orders, weaving 120 possible stories of a romantic triangle. This experimental film breathes the mysteriousness, possibilities and impermanence of romance; it also explores the nature of urbanity and how people live and love in a city.

The Hong Kong Arts Centre will organise a colour lottery for our audience starting from October to decide on the Audience’s Choice Screening!
 
Synopsis
Cuen-shu and A-gua were classmates and grew up together. One day, they meet a woman called Yi-fang while they are playing softball, and both end up falling in love with her. On an evening of a blue moon, the three try to clear up the clouds of their intricate love triangle.
