Moderator: Mercedes Vázquez

The dreams of a second-generation Chinese man growing up in Venezuela and the conflict between his love of Mexican music, his identity as a young Venezuelan man, and his sense of duty towards his traditional Chinese father. A film in Cantonese and Spanish that casts an original light on cultural hybridity and the contribution of the Chinese towards a contemporary Latin American society.

Organized by the Spanish Programme, the Portuguese Programme, and the American Studies Programme of the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (HKU), sponsored by the Consulate General of Spain in Hong Kong and the Consulate General of Mexico in Hong Kong, and with the support of the Department of Comparative Literature (HKU).
