Press Release:

Chun Yip Lo
Days After N Coming, 2012
1 hour, 40 min. (starting at 7pm)

“In the year 2010, I started participating in demonstrations and kept thinking how can I get involved more. What I got was my camera and my sense of the power of cinema. I might not be able to give an inspiring speech or to overpower others physically but my creativity and recording techniques could make a difference. I began filming the anger in Hong Kong and also my growth over these past two years. This led to the creation of Days After N Coming. Starting from the New Year’s march, protests during the year 2010 could be seen taking place all over Hong Kong, as protestors cried out their disagreement against the construction of the High-Speed Express Rail Link, the demolishment of Choi Yuen Village, the 2011-12 Budget, and in support for the international Occupy Movement. Participants came together even when there was no longer a specific leading figure, and were dedicated to learn how to fight against injustice.”
– Chun Yip Lo, Director

Chun Yip Lo studied film at the Hong Kong City University, School of Creative Media. From 2010 onwards he has produced several short films: deep in mind, 21 years after, Paradox and the latest one, his first feature film, Days After N Coming, which all set off from a historical perspective with regard to changes in society. In various demonstrations and mass campaigns, Lo has participated not only as filmmaker, but also as one of the many participants. On the streets, in rallies that are rigorous and yet romantic, he gets the chance to meet more people with the same interests. Each campaign uses different methods to raise social imagination, to gather more voices, to enhance thinking and to outrun the dominance of giant monopoly.

The event is free and open to the public. RSVP to rsvp@curatorsintl.org with TEMP Screenings in the subject field. Refreshments will be served.
