The Poem of Pakistan – Premiere
Hamid, a young Pakistani, is an insurance and investment broker. No matter how hard he tries, he finds it hard to be part of the society. He works hard to earn a living and has to take shortcuts sometimes. While handling a medical claim issue, he gets to meet a Pakistan youth who loves Pakistani literature. This encounter brings back Hamid’s memories of his homeland and his family, leading him to reflect on his current way of life.

Through the camera lens we see the Ethnic Minority youth’s perspective: Melting Pot screening and discussion
Like the locals, ethnic minority youths are facing challenges during their life stage: school climate, mental health and peer relationship. “All About Us” has served as the first step to introduce moving image creation to many of the ethnic minority youths in Hong Kong. Among them is Bipin Karma, who first participated in the programme in 2013, has eventually continued to join in consecutive years, and directed his first short film Melting Pot. He made his major film debut this year with his role in Hand Rolled Cigarette.
