This was a film shot on a cloudy Hong Kong morning and edited on the hot afternoon that followed right after. It interprets what has become a favorite poem of mine using scenes from my neighborhood and my apartment.

Thanks to Yvonne Young and Allison Morrow for their time, their help and their company.

This Is Just To Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

And in Chinese (translated by the lovely Isabella Steger):

我剛吃了
李子
它們在
冰箱裏

也是你
很可能
留下
當早餐的

原諒我
它們很好吃
又甜
也很涼
