Synopsis

During the rise of the materialistic comfort of life in the 1960s, there emerges an undercurrent of danger in Hong Kong. Ji yuan tai qi hao tells the tale of Ziming, a Hong Kong University undergraduate, entangled between his amorous feelings for Mrs Yu, a self-exiled mother from Taiwan in the White Terror period, and her beautiful daughter Meiling. He takes them to different movies and through a series of magical moments on the big screen, forbidden passions are revealed. The era coincides with Hong Kong’s turbulent times of 1967.

Director’s Statement

Ji yuan tai qi hao is not ‘all about Eve’ but all about me.
It is a story of love in desperation, with contradictory ingredients: in and out, high and low, vice and virtue, war and peace, beauty and the beast, east and west, unorthodox and classical, spiritual and physical... all of them are merged into thousands of hand drawn images that nourish the whole film. It is my first attempt at animation because only through this form of art my desolation of splendour can be delivered. It is my love letter to Hong Kong and cinema. A story about yesterday, today and tomorrow. Above all, it is a film of liberation.
