Director Statement

"Hong Kong is a city without myths."

Indeed, compared to many places with rich tradition of folklores and legend, Hong kong has never had an iconic mythical creature to represent herself. Lo-Ting could be the only mythical creature in Hong Kong that is relatively well-known among Hong Kong-ers.

Starting from the 90's, intellectuals of Hong Kong began to utilize Lo-Ting as a metaphor to re-bulid Hong Kong people's identity due to the similarity of Lo-Ting’s fate and that of Hong Kong people's.

And it was around 2019 when this project began to take shape in my mind, as I contemplated on Hong Kong people's destiny and future. I came to the conclusion that perhaps now is the best time to re-tell the story of Lo-Ting in this uncertain present.
