Dancer

This emotionally raw documentary follows the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal dancer, Sergei Polunin, as he leaves the stage at the height of his success. Despite Polunin’s departure from the stage, he has become more popular than ever before, thanks to his performance to Hozier’s Take Me to Church, released in 2015. Dancer perfectly captures the turmoil Polunin went through as he reached the end of one path and started on a new one.

David Hockney at The Royal Academy of Arts: A Bigger Picture 2012 & 82 Portraits and One Still Life 2016

David Hockney's exhibitions, hosted in cities like London, New York, and Paris, have attracted millions of global visitors. He is widely regarded as Britain's most popular artist. This film focuses on two of his blockbuster exhibitions held in 2012 and 2016 at The Royal Academy of Art in London, and features intimate and in-depth interviews with the artist.

There will be a 20-minute Q&A session after the screening, where audience members can talk to Eve Tam, the Chief Curator of the Hong Kong Museum of Art.

When: 5.30pm, February 3
Where: Broadway, The ONE


The Helper

Every year, thousands of people, mostly Southeast Asian women, come to Hong Kong seeking employment as foreign domestic helpers. Even though they take care of many aspects of a Hong Kong family's lives, including caring for the children and watching them grow up, helpers are ironically separated from their own families as they work abroad in the hopes of securing a better future of their children. This beautiful documentary captures the lives and dreams of Hong Kong's migrant domestic workers, and honours these heroines and their sacrifices.

There will be a 10-minute Q&A session in the lobby after the screening, and a singing performance by The Unsung Heroes, a choir of 50 domestic helpers who are featured in the documentary.

When: 3.25pm, February 11
Where: MOViE MOViE, Cityplaza


Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny

In Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny, the famous indie film director talks about his visions and work. Linklater has made plenty of masterpieces, including Dazed and Confused, the Before trilogy and Boyhood. Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, and Ethan Hawke starred in Boyhood, which gained a lot of attention for its lengthy production time (2002-2013) during which its principal actor grew up in real time along with his character, and which Linklater used to explore what it truly means to come of age. 

When: 8pm, February 14
Where: Broadway, Cinematheque
