Films to be screened:

Everyone has their own difficulties and their ways to tackle them. Some people turn to religion and look for the blessings from above. Some resist authority with their own strength. And some exert their influence by taking actions. This month's Jockey Club ifva Everywhere People’s Cinema - Open-air Screening will take place in Yau Ma Tei Community Centre Rest Garden, a place full of collective Hong Kong memories where both locals and tourists love to visit. Four ifva Awards shorts and animations will be screened.

The congee, for You and Me tells an unusual encounter of two elderlies who eventually become friends and support each other. Based on a true story, The Busy Young Psychic is about a young psychic who has to deal with endless demands of superstitious clients. On the Same Boat is a 5-minute documentary about the 'Equal Share Campaign'. 1+1 tells the story of a grandfather and his granddaughter from Tsoi Yuen Village. The pair visited disappearing Hong Kong landmarks and tried to preserve the fading collective memories.

The event is free of charge. All are welcome.

Bring your own picnic mats!
