Memories to Choke On, Drinks to Wash Them Down

An acclaimed anthology following Hong Kongers from different backgrounds as they face the future, mixing fiction and fact, humour and drama

The screening will be followed by a satellite Q&A with directors Leung Ming-kai and Kate Reilly.


Four stories (three fictional, one documentary) show how fiction and fact, humour and drama, the personal and the political are contemporary facets of the same ever-fascinating, complex, challenging realties that constitute Hong Kong. Leung Ming-kai and Kate Reilly’s delightful anthology captures the rich mix of cultures that defines Hong Kong in lively and gently provocative fashion, following a diverse set of characters from different backgrounds as they reminisce on the past while looking to the challenges of the future.
