In Your Dreams (Hong Kong) director

Tam Wai-ching is a screenwriter and director from Hong Kong. She started off as a novelist in high school, but started focusing on filmmaking during her time at university.  She wrote scripts for THE WHITE STORM (2013), CALL OF HEROES (2016) and OPERATION MEKONG (2016). In 2012, her short THE LITTLE ONE won her the Fresh Wave short film competition. IN YOUR DREAMS is her first feature film, a romantic film on the Oedipus subject.

“This is not an ambitious film. I simply want to make a romantic, coming-of-age story.” The first short film I made is about a boy following a woman every night. It was an Oedipus complex story. I have always wanted to turn that 10-minute short film into a feature film. This is a film about student-teacher romance, Oedipus complex, extramarital affair and growing up.”

Tam Wai-ching will be present for Q&A after the screening of IN YOUR DREAMS on Saturday 10 March on 19:30.
