High Noon ​& Shorts

Hong Kong's suburban neighbourhoods, public housing estates, and hangouts are vital aspects of the city's local identity. In ‘A Different View’, a subchapter of ‘Hong Kong: The Establishing Shot’, these spaces come to life through lesser-told stories about the relationship of Hongkongers with their quotidian environments—offering moments of connection and beauty told in intimate settings.

High Noon ​

Heiward Mak | 2008 | 35 mm | Chinese & English subtitles | 106 min.

In Heiward Mak's remarkable feature debut examining growing pains and the sense of bewilderment on the cusp of adulthood, a group of students pull pranks and skip class to fight boredom. They turn familiar locations in Hong Kong into their playground, idling their days away under the scorching sun until a leaked video clip causes a rift between them. Actors Sham Ka-ki and Lam Yiu-sing make their first screen debut, portraying the restlessness and individuality of teenagers who confront the realities of impending adulthood.

The screening on 18 June will be followed by a post-screening talk in Cantonese with Heiward Mak and Sham Ka-ki.
