“Yesterday Once More” is produced by Caritas Lung Yeuk Tau Community Development Project, funded by the Lord Wilson Heritage Trust

The “bridal lament”, one part of the custom in traditional Chinese weddings, signified helplessness and despondence in the life of traditional Chinese women. The song of bridal lament was passed along to newlywed brides through singing and by memory. Its music and lyrics expressed their steadfast defiance in the face of arranged marriages.

Living inside the walled-village, these old ladies toiled all their lives behind their husbands in silence. Today, they will present themselves in front of the camera and sing about the ups and downs of their lives as well as their minds.

Directors’ Talk speakers:
Dr Stephen Cheung
Chan Kwok Ming
Ng Lok Chi, Jeanne

Rainbow Chan

The talk will be conducted primarily in Cantonese with simultaneous translation to English available.

Rainbow Chan
Rainbow was born in Hong Kong and moved to Australia at a young age. She is interested in the transformation of culture and language through migration. Rainbow's research into Weitou traditions is a way to connect with the heritage of her mother, whose roots can be traced back to the indigenous Tang () clan.

Rainbow Chan is a vocalist, producer and multi-disciplinary artist who has built a reputation as one of the most innovative musicians in Australia. Driven by a DIY spirit, Chan melds catchy melodies and off-kilter beats made up of field-recordings and found sounds. Both heartbreaking and tender at once, her idiosyncratic brand of pop music holds a mirror up to diasporic experiences and deeply personal tales of love and loss.

Chan’s debut record "Spacings" (Silo Arts & Records, 2016) was feature album on community radio stations nationwide and nominated for FBi SMAC Record of the Year, and AIR Best Dance/Electronica Album. Lifted from the EP "Fabrica" (Healthy Tapes, 2017), her single "Let Me" won the FBi SMAC Award for Best Song. She is also a lecturer at the Sydney Conservatorium in Bachelor of Contemporary Music Studies.
