The film BACK HOME was premiered at the New York Asian Film Festival before it was commercially released in Hong Kong in September, 2023, and has received much critical acclaim since then. The film features Chinese cultural traditions and unique Hong Kong architectures to bring out a spine-chilling spookiness that transcends cultural boundaries.
‘Heung Wing returns from overseas knowing that his mother is in coma after a suicidal attempt. He stays in his childhood home in an old public housing estate in Hong Kong. Everything in his old home and old neighbourhood looks eerily weird. A series of suicide cases happens in the housing estate, and he starts to see ghosts appearing in front of him. That evokes his traumatic childhood memories of seeing spectral beings, while he had to pretend not’.
