      A Family Tour + Ying Liang Q&A

      The latest award-winning work from director Ying Liang is a heart-breaking look at life in exile.  A Family Tour (自由行) Country: Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia Year: 2018 Director: Ying Liang Starring: An Nai, Zhe Gong, Pete Teo, Tham Xin Yue Running Time: 107 mins Format: Digital Language and Subtitles: In Mandarin, Cantonese, Min Nan with English subtitles Film Type: Fiction Chinese filmmaker Yang Shu (Zhe Gong) lives in Hong Kong with her husband and son. Due to her repeated efforts to film China’s political injustices, she is no longer welcome in her home country. When her latest work gets selected for a festival in Taiwan, Yang Shu takes the opportunity to travel there to meet with her ailing mother (An Nai), on a family holiday with complicated arrangements. The plan is to stay as inconspicuous as they possibly can.   Director Ying Liang’s A Family Tourmirrors recent events in his own life after the release of his 2011 film, When Night Falls. Self-referential yet deeply personal, the film highlights the disruption of lives under the oppressive rule of a country where trying to be together with your loved ones counts as a brave action of defiance against authority.
