Synopsis:
Following the critical success of her previous narrative feature Big Blue Lake, which brings her the Best New Director of the 31st Hong Kong Film Award, Jessey Tsang’s latest feature-length documentary, Flowing Stories continues the exploration of her native village, Ho Chung in Sai Kung. “In contrast with political documentaries that stress the preservation of local villages, Flowing Stories is an ode to the land,” said Tsang.

Part of a “Ho Chung Tetralogy” that includes the interactive web piece All About My Ho Chung, the short film The Life and Times of Ho Chung Village and the feature film Big Blue Lake, Flowing Stories is Jessey Tsang Tsui Shan’s first feature-length documentary. Through depicting the recurrent reunions and partings of villagers and the intimate details of their lives, the film examines issues about urban and rural development. Filmed on location in Hong Kong and in various cities in France and Great Britain, Flowing Stories is an ode to village life and a journey in search of Hong Kongers’ collective roots. Tsang’s camera records the beautiful scenery and time-honored customs of a local village, as well as a once-a-decade village festival, which serves as a continuation of a tradition passed down through the generations as well a testament to the loving bonds among family members. In today’s Hong Kong, when people feel they face an uncertain future, the director hopes to review a village’s development and future progress and explore the meaning of home and diasporas through this meaningful local documentary.....

曾翠珊繼《蠔涌》(網絡互動作品)、《河上風光》(短片)和《大藍湖》(長片)後的「蠔涌四部曲」,精心經營的首齣紀錄片製作。從蠔涌村民聚散離合、生活點滴,看城鄉經濟的發展。導演走訪英、法等國家多個城市,用鏡頭捕捉美景和風俗,探討漂流他鄉的村民對鄉土的感情,尋回那遺忘失落的根。十年一度的太平清醮,除了是代代相傳的禮節儀式,更是家庭團聚及遊子思鄉的見證。在今日香港人面對不明前景,思考何去何從之際,導演希望藉著作品,從離鄉別井的經歷去探索家的定義,並從社群流徒的故事去反思過去和展望村落的未來發展。這是一部極具誠意及啟發性的本地紀錄片製作。
