Project Statement

Wish

The idea of the “Wish” series is to try to present in a plain way the various perceptions and desires of Hong Kong from the perspective of common mainland Chinese people. The series has been edited such that an 86-year-old farmer marks its beginning and a 7-year-old girl marks its close. Such a sequence depicts the passage from past to future, as well as the transition of time.
