Description

In Donkey Riding, director Simon Liu gathered hand-processed and rephotographed 16mm from his trip back home to Hong Kong. Journeying back to the house he grew up in, Liu pieces together scrapbook audio recordings revealing some of his early attempts at speaking, broken sentences interrupted by toy sirens, images of Tokyo streets and Los Angeles highways. He also captures fleeting memories on trains and out of car windows while sharing moments with intimate images of people who are happy to see him. Liu explores these deeply familiar faces and spaces by indulging in curiosities about the potential of 16mm film.
