FTW: Tickets to see ‘Aberdeen’
THANKS to the folks over at Magnum Films, we’ve got some double passes to Pang Ho-cheung’s latest film, Aberdeen, which features an all-star Hong Kong cast. Hieu Chau has more details on the film and the competition.
Fans of Hong Kong writer-director, Pang Ho-cheung (Love in a Puff, Vulgaria) will have cause for excitement May 8 as the filmmaker’s latest movie, Aberdeen, will release in select cinemas across Australia.
The film’s release coincides with the official release date in Hong Kong and China, ensuring Chinese-native residents in Australia a chance to catch the film the same time as their countrymen back home.
With an ensemble cast of Hong Kong’s finest including Louis Koo, Eric Tsang, Miriam Yeung, Gigi Leung, Carrie Ng, Chapman To and Shawn Yue, Aberdeen has been touted as the director’s most mature work to date.
The comedy-drama – which had its world premiere as the opening film at the Hong Kong International Film Festival in March – explores the dynamics of an average middle-class Hong Kong family with astute attention; the same type of observational attention that brought his romantic comedy, Love in a Puff, much critical acclaim. Using each member of the Cheng family, Aberdeen constructs an identity of Hong Kong’s people across three generations and touches on the internal contradictions its citizens face.
In Melbourne, Aberdeen will be showing in the following cinemas: Hoyts Melbourne Central, Hoyts Chadstone, Village Cinemas Century City.
