Mr. Tse

Lee Nim-chung

Col / 10’00” / In Cantonese with Chinese and English subtitles

Mr. Tse works at HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity. There are hardly any students in campus under the pandemic. When night falls, the school is now managed by Mr. Tse, the only janitor on campus. The short film records the daily routine of Mr. Tse, and how such routine connects with the pandemic and the society. He actually finds his haven within the bureaucracy.

Artist’s Statement

Making of this film introduced me to the school custodian, Mr. Tse, who protected our school. Under the influence of the pandemic and social incidents, his role cannot be underestimated, for he also has his own methods of resistance.
