Dir: Rita Hui | Chor: Chan Kwun-yi, Vinci Mok, Cally Yu | Hong Kong | 2014 | 24 minsThe director of Dead Slowly and Keening Woman, Rita Hui creates surreal dance fable taking inspiration from the parable Lament to the Drowned by Tang dynasty literary giant Liu Zongyuan. Filmed in a closed tunnel with Cally Yu, Chan Kwun-yi and Vinci Mok, Elegy revolves around the performers’ pain and struggle expressed in Butoh while living in a state of siege. Hui’s first full-length film Dead Slowly was the only Hong Kong entrant for the New Currents award at the 14th Pusan International Film Festival.
