Place: Connecting Space, 18-20 Fort Street, North Point, Hong Kong
Love Man Love Woman by Nguyen Trinh Thi
Color | 2007 | 54min | Vietnamese with English Subtitles
Directed by: Nguyen Trinh Thi
This documentary piece consists of several interviews that construct the narrative about a Buddhist master mediumI who is a gay person in Hanoi. Through Master Luu Ngoc Duc, one of the most prominent spirit mediums in Hanoi, and his vibrant community, the film explores how effeminate and gay men in homophobic Vietnam have traditionally found community and expression in the country’s popular Mother Goddess Religion, Đạo Mẫu.
This month’s film is selected by Hitomi Hasegawa. On selecting “Love Man Love Woman”, she says, “ [the film] is a story about the antagonism between the society and sexual minority. (It) also revealed personal role, sexual desire and status in the community. The master also has a kind of the liberation through his religious job as a master medium, but through this documentary, we rather see his agony, shadows and sadness. They make the good contrast of his bright smile and laugh, the vivid costume and makeup of the master medium, funny dance and songs.”
*All screening sessions are open to public and free of charge.

Tell Me a Tale /Perfromances
SAT 14 MAR 12-8.30 pm
SUN 15 MAR 12-6 pm
WING is thrilled to present its first participation in Chai Wan Mei Art & Design Festival. Tell Me a Tale marks the debut of WING. Crossing the borders between visual art, dance, theatre and embracing other hybrids in an intimate relation with the audience, it reflects a vision that focuses on sharing space, time and ideas to develop artistic practices in relation with a local environment and an international arts community.
Two Hong Kong based choreographers Elysa WENDI and Scarlet YU re-think space and time in choreography through durational performances sharing their stories with the visitors of the festival. Scarlet YU (HK/SG) engages the spectator in a one to one performance to re-create the choreographer’s autobiography questioning the border between the private and the public. Elysa WENDI (SG/HK) has borrowed 10 books from 10 Hong Kong choreographers to create a daily-changing performance of 10 hours for 10 consecutive days, in dialogue with the environment and the people visiting the library.
Didier FAUSTINO’s (FR/PT) parasitic performance operates in various spaces going from streets, industrial corridors and elevators to various private spaces, questioning the relation between the body and its architectural surroundings.
