Programme 2: Blurring Realities 19.11.2021 (Fri) 1945|
with post-screening talk
host by YEUNG Chun Yin (Uncle Salt)

We thought there was a definite difference between true and false, just like the choices on an exam paper. But what is the truth? People can interpret the same incident from different angles, blurring the line between reality and imagination. Five shorts that include the elements of animation, documentary, and fiction challenge the boundary between true and false, questioning the seemingly unshakable reality.

When night falls, the school is now managed by Mr. Tse, the only janitor on campus.
