Chinese New Year 2022 at HOME Manchester, Manchester 3 — 6 February 2022 Entrance is free — Visit now

To mark the arrival of the Year of the Tiger, HOME are collaborating with the Confucius Institute and Chinese Film Forum UK to bring two events to Manchester.

First up, from Hong Kong comes a screening of director Chiu Sin-hang’s One Second Champion with an introduction by Andy Willis, HOME’s Senior Visiting Curator: Film. Scheduled for Thursday 3 February, the film follows the plight of a struggling single father gifted with the power of seeing one second into the future, and persuaded to use his ability in the boxing ring.

Then on Sunday 6 February, a curated selection of short documentaries takes looks at cultural practices and daily lives in contemporary China, from the foothills of the Great Wall, to the lakes of the North, just outside of Beijing. Designed to showcase a rapidly changing country, the films showcase the work of up-and-coming documentarians and visual anthropologists, and were originally created as part of “Looking China”, a programme facilitated by the Confucius Institute in collaboration with Beijing Normal University.

Following the screening, audiences will have to opportunity to ask questions of two of the directors, Will Hayter and João Meirinhos.
