Jon Wang – From Its Mouth Came a River of High-End Residential Appliances (2018)
A drone’s-eye-view recording leads the audience through Hong Kong’s dragon gates, a series of gaps in high-rises that allow dragons to fly from the mountains to the sea while a character relates their relationship with geomancy, remote-selves and therianthropy (the mythical ability to shift shapes).
We conclude this year’s partnership with the New York Film Festival’s Projections sidebar with this voyage into the Hong Kong skyline. A study of architecture’s accordance and discordance with hegemonic politics, this is a bravely personal short film of sprawling political critique and reflection.
