To Liv(e)
Evans Chan
Hong Kong / 1992 / Col / 106’ / In Cantonese and English with Chinese and English subtitles
Cast: Lindzay Chan, Josephine Koo, Anthony Wong

Of Evans Chan’s directorial debut, long considered an underground classic, The Hollywood Reporter wrote: “To Liv(e) was inspired by actress Liv Ullmann’s 1990 visit to Hong Kong, where she decried the forced deportation of Vietnamese refugees. This, coupled with the Tiananmen Square crackdown the year before, contributes to a dark cloud of apprehension over the British colony… With a painter's eye in capturing the bohemian fringe of the Hong Kong art scene, and the mature voice of a seasoned filmmaker, Chan examines love, family, and the fate of Hong Kong, and the culture clash between East and West with equal depth and assurance.”

“There are many things we cannot choose in life, no one can choose their parents. You have to learn to love them before knowing them.”
My graduation film is about my personal feelings to Hong Kong and its complicated relationship with China. It expresses what I really want to say and feel at the age of 23, that I love not just my birth place Hong Kong but my country as well.
