Director biography

Director's statement

Celebrated, committed filmmaker Ying Liang contributed with a beautiful moving short with an special angle asking: Where do we live, and what is citizenship? This is YING Lliang's first short film made in Hong Kong. Let's hope this 25-minute short film is worthy of this chaotic world.
