How do we remember an ever-changing city?

Dorothy Cheung

Reverberation is an experimental film that centres on Yau Ma Tei—a district in Hong Kong that was home to various independent art and cultural spaces in the 2010s and was also where the filmmaker began her practice. By overlapping new and archival images, the film delves into layers of memories to capture complex emotions about this district as well as the city as a whole.
