Macao SAR | 2019 | 22’ |  Mandarin | Group: B
Director: Stark Chou

Synopsis

In the original Grimm fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood falls prey to the wolf only when she lets down her guard. So when a serial rapist is on the loose in your city, the worst thing you can do is trust a bad guy who appears friendly to you.

Lonely Encounter
Hong Kong SAR | 2019 | 23’ |  Cantonese | Group: B
Director: Jenny Wan

Synopsis

Winter Solstice is a time for family reunion at the end of each year. But it is a lonely time for Keung, a taxi driver, and Hei, a foreign student. Having lost his beloved wife, Keung spends all his time alone, and is trapped in the emptiness of losing his home. Feeling no sense of belonging from his family, Hei had always longed for leave, but it only led to a repetitive and monotonic life. The encounter of these two men in a taxi is like a drowning man in the ocean clutching onto a piece of driftwood, but the question is who is the drowning man, and who is the driftwood?
