Dorothy Cheung | 7'52'' | Hong Kong #filmpantoum
Still Lives is a compilation of visual pantoum poetry made in 2021, after being back in Hong Kong that is still in shock. These poems are about people, streets and places that I have briefly encountered and the unspeakable emotions that they brought – some of them have already vanished, and some have experienced tremendous change. Yet, in this brief moment, they are captured in the poems.
