Endless press interviews, photographs, dinners, networking sessions, a declaration in the HKIFF’s official bulletin that Homeless FC received the “fiercest applause of the festival”… we think it all went very well. Call it post-editing stress syndrome. But it’s still a little surreal.
The bits that we do remember:
Hung and Coco arriving in a flurry of tears and sulks. A lovers’ tiff. Neither wanted to back down. But they left the screening, holding hands; smiles all round. Hung said the film reminded him of all the things he holds dear – Coco. Tracy. Family.
Chor Pat looking pensive. It’s been a helluva year for him.
The audience applauding Wai Tung.
David, beside himself with excitement, each time he saw himself on screen.
“That’s MEEEEE! That’s MEEEEEEE!” He half-yelled at least a dozen times to the poor guy sitting next to him (sorry, Ian!).
Ah Lung signing autographs. He’s apparently become the subject of many a young lady’s blog here in Hong Kong. That handsome guy in the homeless documentary.
It’s been a long, hard slog. But it ain’t over yet. We’ve made the film. Now, to get it seen.
