In an unreal version of Paris set during an unknown period, there is an epidemic of a deadly disease resulting from “lack of love”. Two old men plan to steal the vaccine to cure the disease, and they seek help from their old partner’s son Alex. Treasure-hunting does not matter while feelings of love do. Since Alex meets a mysterious, quiet girl called Anna at the old man’s place, the story focuses on the confused tangles of the two young hearts. This is a wonderfully romantic journey which leaves no regrets.

Li Chi Tak first watched Mauvais Sang at the Hong Kong International Film Festival and he was immediately fascinated by the breathtaking beauty of Juliette Binoche and the wild character of Denis Lavent. The powerful visual and auditory effects of Leos Carax’s film are also praiseworthy. The movie blends elements of film noir with uncertain fantasies, but it retains more futuristic elements reminiscent of sci-fi films. After the screening, Li will attend the sharing session to discuss his favourite movie Mauvais Sang and his comic creations in detail.

Conversation Moderator: Honkaz Fung: Filmmaker, Comic Artist, Curator of Li Chi Tak Original Drawings Exhibition “When the City was Young and Beautiful”

The talk will be conducted in Cantonese, with Cantonese to English simultaneous interpretation available.

About Li Chi Tak

Li entered the comics industry after he graduated from high school in 1982, working for Yuk Long Limited and Season Publishing Company. In 1984, he published the Wisely series, and in 1987, self-published Tong Men Shao Nian, a strikingly compelling comics which catapulted him to fame. Assassins, Tian Yao Ji and Superbaby were subsequently published. As a comics artist with distinctive style, Li became widely acclaimed in Japan, with works such as Posh! The Gang, Miss Chan and My Nation being published in Japanese magazines. He was even invited to participate in Asia in Comic, a touring comics exhibition around Japan, and illustrate for Kagamijigoku, a short story by the famous Japanese writer Edogawa Ranpo. Li is regarded as the most prominent Hong Kong artist in the Japanese comics scene. Even more impressively, his works were already introduced to the Western world in the 90s. In 1998, Spirit was translated into French and published in Europe. The comic The Beast is published in French in 2016, and the latest work Little Circle is launched in Malaysia & Singapore in the same year.

Li is now participating in a comic collaboration project with Louvre (BD Louvre), this work will be published later this year.
