About the Film

The Kowloon Industrial District is home to many of Hong Kong’s artists, including rapper Heyo, YouTuber Alan, rising star Hana, and dancer. However, the government is preparing the area for gentrification. The group from ‘The Way We Dance’ were invited to participate in a publicity stunt to transform the district into a ‘Dance Street’.

By The Way We Dance, Adam won the Best New Director of the Hong Kong Film Awards and the Hong Kong Film Director’s Guild in 2013. The Way We Dance and She Remembers, He Forgets got nominations at the Golden Horse Awards and were awarded at the Hong Kong Film Awards. The sequel, The Way We Keep Dancing has been born, which gets six nominations at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Award and is the closing film of the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival.  


“Politics have always been part of Wong’s movies. The dream-chasing sentiment of The Way We Dance captures the hopefulness of a Hong Kong pre-Umbrella Movement. After the failure of that event, the dual timeline She Remembers, He Forgets was already laced with middle-aged regret of dashed dreams. And now in 2021, The Way We Keep Dancing brings utter helplessness to the surface. ”
