Hong Kong IFF DAY 4 香港国際映画祭DAY4

Around 9 am I got waken up by a phone call from Soda, my NY friend. He said he’s been up for while because of a jet lag. His new film “Mental” which was in Berlinale’s Forum together with Deep in the Valley last February, is in the documentary competition and I think it should be winning some award. We and Tomoko-san had a dim-sum together.
4-day stay in Hong Kong was short, but meaningful to meet Yu Lik Wai and Chow Keung and talk about next production.
朝、友人の想田さんより突然の電話。昨日香港に着いて、時差ぼけで早朝から起きているとのこと。原朋子さんとも落ち合い、3人で飲茶をすることになった。ベルリンでも一緒だった想田さんの新作「精神」は、ここ香港でドキュメンタリー部門のコンペに入ってる。力強い作品なので、ぜひ賞に絡んでもらいたいし、絡んで当然だと思う。
4日間の香港stay だったが、Yu Lik Wai やChow Keung など次作に関わるパートナーと集中して話すことが出来たのが大きな収穫だった。さらに”Deep in the Valley” のアジアでの上映が広がっていけばいいと思う。
