Overview

British Colonial-era structures overlook scenes in the aftermath of the civil unrest of Hong Kongers as suspension cables and ship anchor lines reveal fragile urban anatomy. The structures keep the city moving. A rendering of the perseverance of spirit in Hong Kong - an attempt at the irony that can’t help but be emotional.

Review

This film features the streets of Hong Kong after the civil unrest. The place was an arena of political fervor, but now the remainders find their place in Hong Kongers’ memory and personal images. Happy Valley shows the unmanageable faces of a US-based filmmaker’s hometown. In order to show historical moments, filmmaker Simon Liu filled the screen with images of places where personal time is engraved onto, rather than directly showing images from protests. Many scenes seem to cherish memories of classic Hong Kong films, probably because of where Liu came from, not to mention what he remembers and resonates with. (Sung MOON)
