Synopsis The film is based on the Founder of Causeway Bay Books - LAM Wing-kee’s experience after he was temporarily released back to Hong Kong after 8 months of detention in Mainland China. LAM was demanded by the authorities to retrieve his computer in the bookstore in Hong Kong, alongside with the information of his customers. Only when he found out that his colleague handed over to him the wrong computer, should he start to think about possibilities besides submitting to authorities from Mainland China. The film re-enacts the events happened in the two days he was allowed to return to Hong Kong and explores LAM’s decision to defy, and refuse to leave his homeland.

Remarks shared after Festival


南方影展已有多年辦展經驗,因此宣傳及安排都很周到。此影展很重視具原創性的作品,而且台南很注重文化藝術,對另類的影像藝術也有特別的關注,亦有不少場地會放映短片,相對上香港較少地方可放映短片。



台灣觀眾對香港的政局很敏感,電影給予他們討論的資源,亦對林榮基先生有更多瞭解。之前以為臺灣的觀眾對香港的政局的認識會深一些,但原來他們對香港人面對的政局困難都不太清楚。這次機會正好跟他們在電影和政治上有更深刻的交流和互相支持的機會。得到台灣朋友的支持和鼓勵下,我們香港人的創作者感到沒有這樣孤獨,好像多了一些同行者面對困難的前路。謝謝NAE給予支持使這交流成真。
