My Documentary will be on Film Festival

Here is the good news: the documentary Dai Pai Dong that I did with a team is selected for International Students’ Film Festival in Mumbai, India.


And the bad news: I went to the place where the dai pai dong was located, hoping to celebrate, only to find out that it was gone.


We recorded history.


Just to put a photo here, a photo of us shooting the boss of the dpd, as a memory.


And below is the information about the festival, which I am not going.
