War of Perception

Experimental Film Hong Kong 2020
By Bo Choy
The film follows the journey of a spirit medium through the streets of Hong Kong. In a society where lies and rumours abound, she is on a quest to search for the truth, by collecting messages from the spirits. Weaving through political events that occurred in Hong Kong in 2019/20 with cityscapes, the personal and domestic everyday, "War of Perception" is a cinematic poetry that reflects on the relationship between the city’s colonial past and present.

      Bo Choy is a Hong Kong-born, London-based artist who works across film and performance. Using fiction, sound, and writing as narrative devices, her work borrows from Far Eastern folklore traditions, mythologies, and wisdoms to navigate the historical, the socio-political, or simply what it means to be living in a technologically driven world such as ours.
