Once Upon a Time in Tuen Mun
Tang Kan-kei (Hong Kong)
Col / 8’24” / In Cantonese and Putonghua with Chinese and English subtitles
Ten thousand years is such a long period of time that the origins of everything are lost, and then reappear in the form of a fable. A young man dreams about the world of ten thousand years later and writes it down as a story. This is his dream, and his creation. The characters he writes about echo his own life so much that one can no longer differentiate the writer and the metaphor.
Tang was born in Tuen Mun, Hong Kong and is studying animation at the Taipei National University of the Arts.
