The Tired City by John Chan & Pam Hung was just added to the YouTube Screening room. The film was the Grand Prize winner of the 4th annual TGSNT Digital Story Telling competition. You can watch the short film below.
The story happens to the busy her, and her story can also be your story. She is a character from a fairy tale: sweet, dedicated and rather naive. Facing the owner of Tired Out Incorporation, Bossie, and to earn her living, she pours herself into her work everyday, proficient, no complaints and never says no. The flower in the office is her only joy. But she has no time for it, or her friends or family… then the flower wilts and she comes to realize the true meaning of living…
The short was made possible by The Independent Short Film and Video Awards (ifva). The ifva, hosts annually by the Hong Kong Arts Centre, has been actively promoting innovative creative media since 1995. In addition to supporting short film, video, and interactive media, ifva also organises pre- and post-award activities to enhance public awareness of creative media and encourage media interaction.
