143. Best day in a while. Went to school late for tech run (for film festival) and arrived at 11am then met with Grac, Ms. Lac, Xan and Janic (in that order) and then did a final tech run before the IB/OSSD film festival at 2013.
The turn out was significantly better than I expected and the films were so, so good (P.S. Grac, my brother said his favorite film out of all of them was Virgie).
At the end of it I gave a speech on what it means to study film and then presented a work in progress.
Then after the reception (which was quite fun) Jan Jan and Grac and I went down to a restaurant called Mum (?) and had a nice dinner. And then we went to the rooftop of Janice’s studio.
And then I was waiting for a cab with Janice and Janice told me to take the 69 bus that goes to Cyberport. I did and forgot to push the button at my stop so had to walk back home from Cyberport. And then I walked in the opposite direction from my home for at least 3 minutes before realizing.
Hong Kong is so humid but tonight was nice.
Thank you for a lovely night, Hung and Janice

French photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze’s latest project Vertical Horizon takes a refreshing look at the vertical horizon of Hong Kong, the city where renowned architects from around the world compete to build the tallest and most beautiful buildings. According to Jacquet-Lagrèze, his project aims to remind people to look up at the structures shaping the world around them.

[Self-portraits by Carrie Mae Weems, Käthe Kollwitz, Judy Baca, and Frida Kahlo, text “Never apologize for selfies”]
Wanted to get modern women artists and some WOC up in this one. If you reblog it would be cool if you kept the part in the brackets so these artists, two of whom are still working, will get credit—this conversational part below is nbd.
This is SO much better.

Tip for all my student readers: if you’re too lazy to use a bibliography creator like NoodleBib or RefWorks, let Google generate your bibliography entries for you. All you have to do is google the article/book title in Google Scholar, click “cite” at the bottom of the search result, and copy either the MLA, APA, or Chicago cite into your word document.
