【Open-air Screening
The Posterist (2016) | A Sunny Day (2016)
24.9 (Sat) 7:30pm | Free Admission

The Posterist by Seewai Hui, son of the respected filmmaker Michael Hui, captures the life and art of Yuen Tai-yung, an unsung yet genius artist who single-handedly painted the Golden Era of Hong Kong Cinema from the 70s to 90s. What sparked the documentary was a pure accident: as the cold storage of father’s film firm had folded up, it came as a surprise that a significant amount of fans had requested to redeem posters created by Yuen Tai-yung. This had piqued the director’s interest and urged him to search for this talented master.

As Ying Liang’s first work in Hong Kong, A Sunny Day was greeted time and again at international film festivals. Adapted from Chan Wai’s novels, starring Joe Cheung and Ivy Pang, the story depicts Hong Kong at the heights of the Umbrella Movement. Through dialogues between father and daughter, subtle changes faced by every family amid the troubled times are highlighted, by looking into the growing estrangement.
