TEN YEARS

2015 | Hong Kong | Anthology | In Cantonese with English and Mandarin subtitles | 103min | M18 (Mature Content)

Synopsis: TEN YEARS is a collection of five short stories; a prophecy, and a fable for Hong Kong. All the stories are independent, yet at the same time, intricately related to one another. Through the films, five of Hong Kong’s young directors invite audience to ponder together about the most central issues concerning Hong Kong and reflect upon the present.

EXTRAS (Dir. Kwok Zune)

A terrorist attack is about to be staged amongst the festivities on the day of 1st May.

SEASON OF THE END (Dir. Wong Fei-Pang)

Two youngsters aspire to pass on the knowledge of museums, and have been practising taxidermy for quite some years. They are haunted by memories, and cannot break free from special ties with certain objects.

DIALECT (Dir. Jevons Au)

Post-80s taxi driver, Hank, is in his forties and can’t speak Putonghua well. He is driving everyday with his ‘Non-PTH’ sign, struggling to survive in the place he was born and bred. When Cantonese becomes a dialect, he realises he is losing more than his income.

SELF-IMMOLATOR (Dir. Chow Kwun-Wai)

This is a counter lies pseudo-documentary. Assuming in 2025, China is still breaking the Sino-British Joint Declaration, refusing to fulfill the promise of ‘One country, two systems’, and Hong Kong is still living under its rule, almost a dictatorship. At this time, someone self-immolated in front of the British Consulate-General in Hong Kong…

LOCAL EGG (Dir. Ng Ka-Leung)

The story is set in 2025, when, under all sorts of political reasons to delocalise Hong Kong, the last chicken farm in Hong Kong is forced to close. Sam’s store has relied on selling local eggs over the years. What worries him the most is his nine-year-old son, Ming, has joined the National Security Brigade, and is exposed to confusing concepts of ‘patriotism’.
