Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office, London presents Big Blue Lake, the deceptively simple tale of an actress, Lai-yee, who returns to her home village in an attempt to reconnect with her past. Whilst there, she becomes close to an ex-classmate, Chun, and together they search for the mythical Blue Lake. Set in the village of Ho Chung in Hong Kong’s New Territories, Tsang’s film is a beautifully shot meditation on the past, memory and the encroachment of an almost unstoppable modernisation. Big Blue Lake won its director a very worthy Best Newcomer award at the 2012 Hong Kong Film Awards.
We are pleased to welcome director Jessey Tsang and producer Teresa Kwong for a post-screening Q&A.
