佔領立法會

經過一夜通宵達旦的部署和悼念,風雨欲來的七一清晨仍然歷歷在目。《佔領立法會》由一眾嘗試死諫的示威者和忠於紀錄事實的電影工作者組成主要圖景,面對政府室內升旗之荒謬,和理非遊行的作用存疑,抗爭者冀由衝進立法會而使運動有所改變,門外與泛民議員對質,積存已久的憤怒和絕望爆發出來,撼動人心。藉由警方的「空城計」,成功佔領立法會並讀出宣言立下先例,雖然歷史告知佔領已不合時宜,撤退後的深夜繼續延續街頭暴力衝突,但作戰心態早已植根民間,而人民絕不會罷休。

Taking back the Legislature

After a night of planning and mourning, a storm is brewing at early hours of July 1, 2019. Taking back the Legislature primarily focuses on a group of protesters putting their lives on the lines and dedicated documentary filmmakers. In face of the absurdity of the government’s indoor flag ceremony, protesters question the usefulness of peaceful protest and hope to storm the Legislative Council Complex as a last ditch effort to ignite change in the movement. As they confront pro-democracy councilors outside the complex, their pent-up anger and despair explode. Due to the police’s decision to leave the building defenseless, the group successfully takes back the Legislative Council Complex momentarily and reads out their declaration. Though history has warned of futility in occupied space, violent street clashes continue deep into the night even after the group has retreated. The combat mentality has already taken root in the people’s heart and they shall not give up anymore.

理大圍城

反修例運動來到11月中,似乎來到最高點,理工大學一役成為反修例運動中最驚心動魄的衝突。示威者發起三罷和堵塞行動,警方選擇驅散其中被堵塞的紅磡海底隧道,示威者退到理大,警方則徹底包圍及封鎖整個校園,等待搜捕時機。在外的市民心急如焚,嘗試靠近救援又苦無對策,而優雅的紅色磚牆內,紀錄下的鏡頭盡是籠罩黑暗恐怖的氣氛,四面楚歌,除了想辦法離開、躲藏,能做的就只有等待,一如香港人在極權統治下的縮影,被困者、抗爭者、香港人究竟如何才能逃出生天?

Inside the Red Brick Wall

The Anti-ELAB movement comes to a most horrifying peak in mid-November at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. When protesters call for a citywide strike and road blockage, police chooses to disperse the protesters who were blocking the Cross-Harbor Tunnel. Many of the protesters retreat to the Polytechnic University while police completely puts the school in a lockdown by completely surrounding the area. Anxious citizens want to help but can barely go near the campus. Meanwhile, within those red brick walls, the camera captures a campus shrouded in darkness and horror. Besides trying to leave or hide, the only thing they can do is wait. Like all of Hong Kong living under a totalitarian regime, how could the trapped ones, the protesters and Hong Kongers come out alive?
