A genuinely free-spirited “alternate cinema” offering from award-winner Clara Law (Floating Life, SFF 1996; Letters to Ali), spanning Australia, Macau and Hong Kong.
Drifting Petals is inspired by the novels of W. G. Sebald and the meandering aesthetic of classical Chinese gardens; combining memoir, fiction, travelogue, history and personal biography. Law and her long-term writing-producing partner Eddie Fong embark on an entirely fresh and unfettered approach to the creative process over four years. It begins with a filmmaker and a piano student, who first meet in Australia. Two stories intertwine as the characters try to make sense of a past imbued with mystery in Macau, and an uncertain future in Hong Kong. The living and the dead move freely through this loose and charming filmic journey.
