Synopsis "what day is today – Mothers’ Easter Holiday" is a deadpan story that interacts with the unique space of Hong Kong. It contains minimal use of action, very little dialogue, but a large number of deep focus, long, still takes to capture the relationship between people and space. The plot is simple. It’s about the everyday life of people working in the office, selling suitcases in the mall, but a different approach in storytelling through space, to invite the spectators experiencing the box-like living conditions of Hong Kong, as well as the detached relationships in ordinary, domestic everyday life. The details in each scene tell the story. In the living room, there are left and right, two different worlds of the father playing mahjong while his son is playing an online game, separated by a television with nobody watching. There is also the flat viewpoint of shooting people moving up and down escalators similar to transporting general cargo.

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“From the initial email contact with the South Taiwan Film Festival, it was nice to know that my work was being appreciated and valued for the first time. After participating in this festival, I realised that if a film festival can openly accept non-mainstream films and listen to different voices, this has already shown a huge encouragement to the independent filmmakers. This festival has provided a platform for directors to showcase their pieces, as well as enable the general public to broaden their horizons and expand their visions in art appreciation. All these had made a huge impact to the development of visual creations.”

— Shared by Yeung Hoi-ting, director of what day is today - Mothers Easter Holiday, after attending 14th South Taiwan Film Festival in Taiwan, under the sponsorship of NAE.
