Screenings:

 

  1. Ambiguous

Director: Liu Ziyang China | 2017 | 19’ | Documentary

Synopsis:
Based on a true story, Ambiguous tells the story of a female student who has been molested by a professor. This film reveals an ambiguous “truth" and reflects the imbalance of public opinion about the current education system and media credibility.

Director: Nefise Özkal Lorentzen Norway | 2014 | 58’ | Documentary

English with Chinese Subtitles

Premiere in Hong Kong

 

Synopsis:
When Norwegian-Turkish filmmaker Nefise was a child, she used to send balloon letters to Allah. Now she has decided to send a new balloon to challenge the role of women in the Muslim culture. Following her grandmother's “Sufi” path, she embarks on a quest to discover the essence of Islam. As she strolls through the maze of doors, it dawns on her that maybe Islam is not the only source of the problem – that there may be a link between the three Abrahamic religions and the oppression of women.

Self-Defense tells the stories of three women, who were subjected to constant physical and psychological abuse by their partners. In a rarity, they defy the statistics by killing the men they once loved to survive. These women have to face justice, society and their own judgment.
