《平安米》 Rice Distribution

故事描述2002年在慈雲山球場舉行的一次盂蘭節派米活動。參加輪米人士約有八千二百人,大部份為長者,當中亦有不少傷殘人士。派米活動在早上開始,直至傍晚結束,大部份參加者在零晨已抵達輪候。派平安米活動本為香港的傳統習俗,但近年因貧窮的長者數目不斷増加,很多長者以此賴以生存。
During the seventh lunar month, when the Ghost Festival takes place, Chinese pay tribute to their ancestors and offer food to the deceased to appease them and ward off bad luck. In Hong Kong, besides staging ceremonies to honor the dead, many Taoist organizations give away rice to the elderly and the poor. The rice distribution depicted in this film was one of the largest events, and attracted over eight thousand people. The event was scheduled to last from nine in the morning to six in the evening. In order to ensure a place in the line, most of the participants arrived before dawn.

《搬屋》 Moving

牛頭角村為本港最大的舊型公共屋村之一,居民多為獨居長者及貧苦家庭。政府近年重建該區,自2001年起居民陸續搬去其他新屋。本片以五個多月的時間拍攝,記錄獨居長者搬遷期間遇上的種種困難,以及日常生活的苦與樂。
Ngau Tau Kok Estate is one of the oldest and largest public housing projects in Hong Kong. Most of the residents are either elderly who live alone, or working class families. Since 2001, after the government announced its plan to redevelop the area, residents have been gradually relocated to new housing estates. This film was shot in five months and followed social workers who worked with the residents as they dealt with the relocation, offering a glimpse of the lives of old people.
