Synopsis

Somewhere in Hongkong, a calligrapher lives the contrast between the tradition and modernity. While seeing him at home or when he displaces in the urban space, one asks the questions of identity on his personal universe and on his way to react in relation to the infrastructure of the city. His body moves in a tactile gait, he interprets his writing like a choreography.
Director's note
To present like a progress of sensitivity, the movie shows the current life of an individual, his attitude questions me on his environment. He is going to confront the triviality of the urban society, the poetry of his body is in opposition to the social aspect. While giving a balance in the contradictory energies, I accentuate fragility in the parallel between the intimate space and the architectural space.

Synopsis fr

quelque part dans hongkong, un calligraphe vit le contraste entre la tradition et la modernité. en le voyant chez lui ou lorsqu'il se déplace dans l'espace urbain, on se pose les questions d'identité sur son univers personnel et sur sa façon de réagir par rapport à l'infrastructure de la ville. son corps se meut dans une démarche tactile, il interprète son écriture comme une chorégraphie.

un mot de réalisateur
présenter comme un cheminement de sensibilité, le film montre la vie courante d'un individu, son attitude me questionne sur son environnement. il va confronter la banalité de la société urbaine, la poésie de son corps est à l'encontre de l'aspect social. en donnant un équilibre dans les énergies contradictoire, j'accentue la fragilité dans le parallèle entre l'espace intime et l'espace architectural.
