Five thought-provoking shorts imagine what Hong Kong will be like ten years from now. In Extras, two genial low-level gangsters are hired to stage an attack, but they're mere sacrificial lambs in a political conspiracy. Rebels strive to preserve destroyed homes and objects as specimens in the mesmerizing Season of the End. In Dialect, a taxi driver struggles to adjust after Putonghua displaces Cantonese as Hong Kong's only official language. Following the death of a leading independence activist, an act of self-immolation outside the British consulate triggers questions and protests in the searing yet moving Self-Immolator. In Local Egg, a grocery shop owner worries about his son's youth guard activities and where to buy eggs after Hong Kong's last chicken farm closes down.
"One of the most thought-provoking local films in years."
— Edmund Lee, South China Morning Post
"Ten Years is a smoke grenade lobbed into the febrile political and civic climate of the “special administration region.”
— Phil Hoad, The Guardian
"This is an important film reflecting the angst and fears of a society undergoing dramatic changes."
—Phil Guie, Film Forward
