Asian New Director Special Jury Award

Winner: Dear Daughter

Director: CHENG Oi Yue, Jo

Producer: Ruby YANG

得獎者 :《給女兒的信》



Comment by Jury 評審評語:
In this portrait-like documentary, the filmmaker manages to hold together three dimensions: the daily life of a homeless man struggling to survive, the letters he writes to his daughter who has emigrated, and the emotional relationship that develops between the filmmaker and her character. The passage of time is very perceptible in this very human film, which evokes the experience of Vietnamese diaspora in Hong Kong without ever standing above its subject.

Producer: LIN Ziyang

Producer: CHEN Baiqi

得獎者:《擁啊擁 ong6 a7 ong6》




Comment by Jury 評審評語:
Conceived in a documentary cinematographic style that pays sensitive attention to the present and the plasticity of the image and sound, this film does not hesitate to veer fully into fiction in the course of the narrative, allowing buried memories to emerge.
