A Complicated Story had its world premiere at the Hong Kong International Film Festival tonight. Some of the practiced smiles were familiar to Hong Kong audiences, but the movie had a twist: it came out of a film student’s MFA project. A Complicated Story was directed by Kiwi Chow, who just graduated with an MFA from Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Actors Deanie Ip, Stephanie Che, Zhu Zhiying, and one fellow whose name is unfortunately Zi Yi (leading to Google, and therefore your humble reporter, being unable to distinguish him from the famous martial arts actress/model) turned up for photos at the Grand Cinema in Elements mall. One floor below, a children’s hockey team was having practice on the ice rink. The entire event had a relaxed air, and Deanie Ip, who wore amazing fishnet gloves, joked around about her poor Mandarin with the reporters. The actors were gracious and friendly as they posed for the press. Stay tuned for Olivia’s review of the film!
