Three: Going Home ​& Shorts

‘Forget First, Remember Later’, a subchapter of ‘Hong Kong: The Establishing Shot’, explores Hong Kong's constantly evolving cityscape, driven by innovation, development, and reconstruction. The works in this subchapter document the personal and collective memory of the city’s disappearing spaces and their landscapes, reminding us of the emotionally charged environment that remains archetypal Hong Kong.

Three: Going Home ​

Peter Chan | 2002 | Digital | English subtitles | 60 min.

Three: Going Home is an extended version of Peter Chan’s segment in Three, a successful cross-cultural anthology horror film. The film follows traditional Chinese medicine practitioner Yu (Leon Lai) who keeps his wife's dead body in his home, bathing her daily with herbal medicine for three years as he eagerly waits for her to return to life. Through Christopher Doyle's lens, the eeriness and abandonment in a mysterious photo studio and the former Hollywood Road Police Married Quarters, now known as PMQ, add to the enigma of this supernatural romance. The imaginative effort in preserving the dead speaks of the city's post-handover prospects.
