Director: WANG Jiu-liang

Date: 1 Dec 2018
Time: 12:00 NN – 1:30 PM
Venue: Cinema @ HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity
Mainland China, once the largest importing country of plastic waste, has now closed its door to overseas garbage — because of a documentary. Through the story of Yi-Jie, a 11-year-old girl who grows up in refuse from around the world, Plastic China confronts global consumption and waste export with the most critical environment and social questions.
Hanzi | Taiwan / 2017 / 55 min / Mandarin, English and Japanese with Chinese and English Subtitle

Director: TSAI Mu-ming

Date: 1 Dec 2018
Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Venue: Cinema @ HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity
Compared to designing fonts for 26 alphabets, Chinese typography, with the language’s extensive characters, is a challenge beyond imagination. Hanzi explores culture and identity through lettering, language use, and handwritten scripts in the digital age--in the words of Akira Kobayashi, renowned Japanese font designer, Sammy Or, veteran Chinese font designer, ShaoLan, founder of Chineasy, and Ri Xing Type Foundry, the world’s last foundry crafting traditional Chinese letterpress.

Gaau1 Up has great stories to share about their interactions with these passionate DIY innovators and public campaigners, and what they have brought back for Hong Kong.
