PILLARS is a heartfelt antidote to the stereotypes in social media that shape our identities and experiences today. The film inspects different elements of mise-en-scène through the viewfinder to reveal the ways we entertain ourselves in Hong Kong’s bustling landscape.
Zooming into the live streams of eight sets of characters of diverse ages and from different backgrounds, the intertwined narratives are centred on the archetypal and performative moments in people’s lives and illuminate the role we play as architects of our own identities and realities.
