Film Focus: Big City Little Man at Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Manchester, 18 May 2017, from £3 - Book now

A Chinese tea tasting experience from Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) partner Tea Mandala opens this one-off screening of Big City Little Man, a 1963 short silent film by renowned Hong Kong street photographer Ho Fan. Telling the story of a man who is lost in a big city, pretending to be someone he is not, Big City Little Man is followed by She Said Why Me, another short film by filmmaker, video artist, curator and critic May Fung, in which a woman walks blindfold from an ancient countryside temple to a bustling city. The director uses a distinctively female perspective to combine the past and present, expressing the sense of anxiety that permeated Hong Kong during that particular moment in time.

Tea tasting upon arrival. Screening 6.15pm – 7.15pm.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite and at the CFCCA shop
