Finding My Way: Hong Kong Emerging Female Directors Short Film Programme

Being young should be lively and fun, but in this bustling period, war and violence are happening every minute in different corners of the world. This programme attempts to understand young female directors from Hong Kong by looking through their lenses. Will they come to terms with the current situation? Or will they resist until their wishes come true?
