Made in Hong Kong Film Festival: I’ve Got the Blues
Following her award-winning documentary One Tree Three Lives on novelist Hualing Nieh Engle, director Angie Chen offers another lively documentary, this time about artist Yank Wong. A complex man who resists definition, Wong is a painter, art director, set designer, writer, musician, and photographer—a true renaissance man who expresses his creativity in multiple forms. More than a portrait of an artist and the creative life, the film is a high-octane cat-and-mouse game between filmmaker and subject: one tries to capture, the other evades. (Dir.: Angie Chen, Hong Kong, 2017, 90 min., DCP, Cantonese and English with Chinese and English subtitles)
Films are shown free of charge in the 300-seat Meyer Auditorium at the Freer Gallery of Art. Admission is first-come, first-served. Auditorium doors open approximately 30 minutes before show time.
The twenty-third annual Made in Hong Kong Film Festival is coorganized by the Freer|Sackler and the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office.
