The Jun Li Chun Shek directed and written Hong Kong film DRIFTING (SHOOK SHU PIU LAU) will open on June 3rd. Recently its trailer has been released. Francis Ng Chun Yu's explosive performance led to many discussions. Last month its Asia premiere at the Hong Kong International Film Festival also received many good reviews.
The film was based on real life stories about a group of homeless people who resided under a bridge in Sham Shui Po and was neglected and marginalized by society. The film's official poster was released yesterday. The poster had a Hong Kong that was filled with scales in background. The cast gathered in front of a wooden home, each, with their minds occupied, showed different character traits. After being selected for the 2021 Rotterdam International Film Festival's "Big Screen" competition, the film yesterday announced that it was selected for England's Chinese Visual Festival's "Focus Hong Kong" segment. It would be Li Chun Shek's second selection after TRACEY (CHUI SZE).
