DEATH OF THE SOUND MAN
Directed by Sorayos Prapapan
Listen closely: that’s the sound of a tear rolling down indie cinema’s cheek.
Cheung King-wai / Discoveries / Hong Kong / 2017 / Drama, Thriller / 86 minsA teenager confesses to killing her parents and dumping their bodies in a reservoir. The cold, clinical confession startles the policewoman investigating the case and presses her to look more closely. Violence hangs over Cheung King-wai’s Hong Kong like an unmovable fog, as the two women slither into each other’s lives, shaking off layers of guilt, sadness, and emotional fatigue.
