The Southern Circuit Tour of Filmmakers, presented by South Arts, brings new films from independent filmmakers to cinemas throughout the South — and welcomes directors and producers to Q&A sessions and discussions in conjunction with each screening.
In “Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window,” what starts as a traditional documentary about the Hong Kong art scene becomes an intimate and wryly comedic study of loneliness and alienation within an increasingly globalized world.
Upon realizing that the film he intended to make is going to be a disaster, filmmaker Andrew Hevia turns the camera on himself while continuing to engage with Hong Kong’s art community. Shot in a “first person” style and narrated by a text-to-speech robot, “Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window” becomes a playfully inventive and nakedly emotional self-portrait, using deadpan humor in a postmodern exploration of romance, personal trauma and culture shock like no other film before it.
Scheduled for Q&A/post-film discussion: Director Andrew Hevia
