Untitled Sequence of Gaps (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
An essay film approaching trauma-related memory loss via reflections on light outside the visible spectrum.
Your Own Bullshit (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
There's nothing better than dinner with family. Though it remains a looped script that repeats itself infinitely. Recited singingly for many long years.
The End of Suffering (A Proposal) - (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
Sofia is panicky, again. The universe decides to contact her. An other-wordly dialogue. A planet symphony for Mars, where people dream awake and fight for love.
A Little Loopy (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
An emotional journey through abstract loops, harmony and dissonance.
The Truth About Your Feet (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
It’s funny how everybody seems to sympathise with the string quartet that kept playing, even though the ship was going down.
Signal 8 (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
Disconnected from daily life, Simon Liu’s incursion into the alienation of Hong Kong is an enigmatic symphony of the city’s discordance and fury.
Kopierwerk (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
The cinema is a machine.
Labor of Love (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
An expanding feeling, unfolding new inflections — forever different, forever changing.
Inflorescence (Int. Shorts 3: Free Radicals)
A Romantic Conceptualism bedtime fable of resistance and redundance. Let’s unite to inflorescence!

Simon Liu’s eerie, entrancing portrait of Hong Kong tracks a series of strange disruptions to the city’s urban infrastructure. Deceptively tranquil 16mm images of everyday life are accompanied by muffled music cues, ominous radio transmissions, and intimations of an impending hazardous event that may never arrive.
