AF­TER WORK­ING TO­GETHER on renowned cin­e­matog­ra­pher Christo­pher Doyle and first-time di­rec­tor Jenny Suen team up again for the vis­ually cap­ti­vat­ing, emo­tion­ally be­guil­ing drama

Born with a sun al­lergy, the White Girl lives in the dis­ap­pear­ing fish­ing com­mu­nity of Pearl Vil­lage, but all she wants to do is es­cape. At night, she meets a mys­te­ri­ous Ja­panese out­sider by the sea, and her world be­gins to grow big­ger. Mean­while, her only friend, an in­quis­i­tive young boy, catches on to the con­nec­tion be­tween the vil­lage chief and a group of vis­it­ing prop­erty de­vel­op­ers. Star­ring lo­cal girl and icon An­gela Yuen, along with Ja­panese ac­tor Joe Oda­giri, the work pre­miered at the London Film Fes­ti­val last month and will be clos­ing the Hong Kong Asian Film Fes­ti­val on Novem­ber 20. "She is very dreamy all the time and I share this with her," says Yuen of the char­ac­ter she plays. "I day­dream and imag­ine things a lot to make the world be­come bound­less, in­fi­nite and big." And be­fore you ask – no, those su­per­abun­dant pearls around An­gela's neck (pic­tured above) are not Chanel. (
