Many Undulating Things, 2019
Directors: Bo Wang and Pan Lu
125 minutes
English; Turkish and English subtitles

Colonial air, native plants, botanic empire, segregation, entrepôt, steel-and-glass, shopping malls, memories, laissez-faire, ghost houses, speculation…. Many undulating things.

A meditative and poetic film essay, Many Undulating Things explores contemporary Hong Kong through its history of urban change. Formerly a British colony and now a special administrative region of China, Hong Kong has been dealing with imperial powers for centuries. Drawing stark connections between the colonial past and the capitalist present, filmmakers Bo Wang and Pan Lu shift reflection on the complex relations among landscape, nature, urbanization and society.

A dream-like visual examination of the urban topography, the 2019 documentary film vividly illustrates how networks of power and cultural hegemony are imposed through architecture and city planning, while questioning the functions of a city.

“At Home” films will be streamed at between September 24 and November 29, and will only be accessible to online audiences in Turkey. Thursday Cinema has been supported by Garanti BBVA Mortgage since 2014.
