  • In February 1998 I travelled back to Hong Kong to re-visit my elementary school, La Salle Primary. Time has changed but there are still the same Chinese Catholic boys in school uniforms. The result of my journey is a video of self-discovery and a split-analysis of the physicality and the psychiality of a place where I spent my formative years, shot on location at the school. Everything that I know began from there - lessons of prayer, discipline, oppression, fear, pleasure, tenderness, love, desire, and the loss of innocence.
