【People's Cinema on 25 June】
No Natural Born Heroes

Due to inclement weather condition on 11 June, the open air screening has been cancelled. ifva kindly presents the screening on the same location and time on 25 June.

People are obsessed with super hero films. They hope a hero will come to their rescue in times of despair and desperation. Yet heroes are essentially humans. They can be ordinary on occasions. This time, Jockey Club ifva Everywhere People’s Cinema - Open-air Screening will take place in Tai Ming Lane Square in Tai Po, breaking the boundary between imagination and reality and displaying heroes from all walks of life: a hardworking scaffold builder, a father who sacrifices unconditionally, an old female scavenger who strives for a living and a teenager who possesses super powers. Every one of them is likely to be someone we know in real life who deserves more respect and recognition.

Six short films are to be screened on that night: The Ripple (2010),
Pick Up & Put Down (2010), I am not a superhero (2013), When the Sun Goes Down (2015), Dap Pang Man (2013) and Shear Marks (2015).

Tai Ming Lane Square in Tai Po as its base of operation – a residential area crowded with shops and restaurants. How will this provide a different film experience? Let us know.

The event is completely free of charge. You are welcome to bring your own cushion.

Date: 25 June, 2016 (Saturday)
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Venue: Tai Ming Lane Square, Tai Po

Free Admission. You are welcome to bring your own mats.
