GFF19
Cities of Last Things (Xing Fu Cheng Shi)

Sat 23 February 2019

An elderly man plummets to his death from a high-rise apartment block. What prompted his suicide and the actions that preceded it? Director Wi Ding Ho’s seductively cinematic drama examines key moments in the life of Zhang (Jack Kao), from his final day to his time as a police officer and his wayward youth. We start to understand the sense of betrayal, disappointment, broken dreams and lost loves that have combined to make him the person he will become. Along the way, one ordinary life reveals the hopes and flaws that make us all human.

Also screening on Mon 25 Feb, 3:45pm @ GFT
