2023年11月14日

Presented by the Asian Film Awards Academy (AFAA), in collaboration with Tokyo International Film Festival, financially supported by Create Hong Kong and the Film Development Fund, with support from Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Tokyo), the Asian Cinerama screened five films from 25 October to 1 November during the festival period. Three latest works of Hong Kong directors, “In Broad Daylight”, “Time Still Turns the Page” and “Vital Signs”, were featured under the “World Focus” section. “2046” and “Nomad” (4K Restored Director’s Cut), starring leading Hong Kong actor Tony Leung who gave a masterclass also organized by AFAA, were also presented.

 

The creative team and cast members of “In Broad Daylight” and “Time Still Turns the Page”attended the post-screening Q&A session of their films.

Director Lawrence Kan, leading actress Jennifer Yu, and composer Wan Chu of “In Broad Daylight” engaged with the local audience in a vibrant sharing. Jennifer Yu expressed her honour and gratitude for participating in Asian Cinerama, highlighting the opportunity to showcase Hong Kong films alongside other high-quality international works. She found it truly inspiring as a Hong Kong film practitioner.

Director Kan was not only encouraged by the film’s positive reception at various international festivals but also received heartfelt appreciation from a former Japanese human rights journalist. The journalist conveyed how deeply moved and encouraged he was by the film’s impact, expressing gratitude to the entire team.

After the screening of “Time Still Turns the Page”, Director Nick Cheuk and lead actor Lo Chun Yip shared their creative process and back stories with the local audience. Director Cheuk shared the reason behind creating this screenplay was based on his late friend who committed suicide at a young age. He regretted not to have the chance to travel back in time to hug or comfort his friend. Over 10 years have passed, he would like to talk about how to get along with people with depression when he had the opportunity to make his own film.

Lo Chun Yip explained how he analyzed his character. He felt like making a new friend after reading the screenplay. While acting, he treated the character as a friend, instead of an object. They confronted the situations and relationships together and tried to deal with issues that have been put aside for years.
