DIRECTOR: Jonas Bak TFF 2021 | MASKS AND PROOF OF VACCINE REQUIRED

With seamless grace, shooting on 16 mm, and underscored by a soundtrack from Brian Eno, German director Jonas Bak moves from the tall spires of the Black Forest to the teeming skyscrapers of Hong Kong in his tranquil, deeply moving feature debut. 

Newly retired from her church job, Anke (played by Bak’s real-life mother) dreams of spending time with her grown children. Though she manages time with her daughters, the absence of her elusive son Max, who has been living for years in Hong Kong, leaves her feeling incomplete. So, in a bold decision, Anke pushes through her anxieties and deep loneliness and travels to Hong Kong just as ongoing pro-democracy protests erupt. While there, a series of chance encounters coupled with the city’s teeming energy help her make way for a new chapter in her life, one of spiritual renewal and self-awareness.
