Screening + Panel Talk

A young urban woman Jingjing (Gabby SO) drives to a remote rural village in southern China, in search of her ex-boyfriend who has abandoned her and disappeared – but only to find his grandparents Shuimu (Robert LOH) and Fang (JIANG Hong) in their modest ancestral home. Shuimu’s mute friend Zhongsheng (LU Haoquan) feels that his days are numbered, and craves for returning to his hometown some 300km away to unearth his obscure past. Although reluctant and whiny, Jingjing takes the two lifelong friends in her car laden with funeral supplies, to a trip into the mists of time.

YANG Pingdao’s first fictional feature My Dear Friend reveals the unspeakable human emotions which cannot be simply categorized as love, kinship or friendship by everyone who is searching for a soul mate.

都市女孩菁菁(苏子情)只身一人开车前往岭南乡村,去到不告而别的前男友的老家。他不知所踪,一间老宅只有他祖父母水木(陆叔远)、阿芳(江洪)二人相守。水木有个不能开口说话的好友仲生(陆浩全),两人相识已有60年。仲生感到自己大限将至,执意要回300公里开外的故乡弄清自己的身世之谜。菁菁尽管不情不愿,还是载着两位老人和满车祭品踏上旅程,穿行于时间的迷雾之中。

杨平道的首部故事长片《好友》关乎难以言说的人间情感,不以爱情、亲情或友情界定,存于灵魂伴侣间。
