North American Premiere of DRIFTING PETALS and Conversation with Director Clara Law

January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Join us for the North American Premiere of DRIFTING PETALS 花果飄零, followed by a virtual conversation with Director Clara Law 羅卓瑤 and producer/writer Eddie Fong 方令正. Shot in Australia, Hong Kong and Macau, DRIFTING PETALS is the latest work by critically-acclaimed director Clara Law who won the Best Director Award in the Golden Horse International Film Festival 2021 . Made over 5 years, the bold feature explores the possibility of alternate cinema, and invites the viewers to ponder on diaspora, home, and memory. The creators called the film a “eulogy in memory of the city”.

This is a spotlight event to inaugurate the Asian Independent Cinema Showcase and is co-organized by the Hong Kong Studies Initiative, University of British Columbia, and the Institute for Transpacific Cultural Research, Simon Fraser University.

The film is in Cantonese with English subtitles, and the conversation will be conducted in English. This is a free of charge, in person event. Seats are limited. Registration required.
