Item Description


When Umbrella Movement happened two years ago; when tens of thousands took on the streets of Hong Kong in fight of democracy, student leaders had become the heart of the civil disobedient movement and public attention. But Yellowing is not a documentary that celebrates stars and leaders, nor does it give a journalistic account of the movement. Rather it shed light on the nameless, ordinary young people and their most heartfelt emotions. Their frustration, timidity and sadness- all but to be channeled away in wits and determination. The film is composed of 20 memorandum, each recording a different aspect of the movement. Some being scenes of violence we saw in the news, but more of daily chores, that in the most realistic respect, made this seemingly unrealistic defiance possible. Where there is discord, may we bring harmony; and where there is despair, maywe bring hope. With his camera, director Chan Tze-woon had recorded a reminder for his2014 - the year when he was full of dreams and courage.
