About the documentary film  project - “1 July 2017 - A Day in Transition”
Every year, WMA (WYNG Media Award) invites creators to respond to a socially-relevant theme to Hong Kong through a series of non-profit programmes, with the view to inspire reflection, discussion, and imagination on issues important to this city via the visual language.
 
In 2017, the theme ‘Transition’ was introduced in the context of the 20th anniversary of the change of sovereignty in Hong Kong. The ensuing WMA Film project was an experimental one. The project narrowed the broad theme of ‘Transition’ down to a particular day, 1 July 2017, and invited the public to submit video footage on how they spent the day. Starting with video submissions from the public, filmmakers Steven Dhoedt, SEEAHOLE (Dave Kong, Kenji Ma, Eason Yuen), and Stanley Tam, weaved iconic poetry, graphics & music by local indie artists into three unique moving-image works.
 
A Day in Transition is a co-created documentary film project which tells the stories of Hong Kong through the eyes of people who know and care about the city.
