We love Hong Kong. There are many stories to be told about this beautiful land and some stories made by local artists capture an essence of Hong Kong that is unique and special. We encourage everyone to support local productions and value their works. Let’s hope we can continue to be creative and appreciate more local stories that will be told in the future.

Unfortunately Julian lost his battle with the disease, leaving this film his final legacy.  Actor Lam Yiu Sing gives a brave and heartfelt performance as an upcoming photographer, entangled in a difficult relationship with a Swiss banker while trying to find treatments for his illness.  STOMA is directed by Kit Hung and this is his first feature after the critically acclaimed SOUNDLESS WIND CHIME.
