About the documentary:
With 10+ hours of footage edited down to 5 minutes, the documentary is so hi-fi that makes it looks like a mini movie. Directed by Calvin Li, filmed by Kenji Wong, original background music by Alex Lo. The filming process itself took two days, the crew brought cranes and dollies and whole bunch of lighting equipment.
The viewers would come across the whole book binding process, to name a few: preparation of cover book cloth, binding at a sewing frame, sewing at the spine etc. Have a peek into the sophisticated book-binding process!

Message from Siuyuett:
My deepest gratitude to Calvin Li, the Art Director, Kenji Wong, the Videographer, and Alex Lo for the wonderful original BGM of this Documentary production! Such a stylish and beautiful feature of my creative process! It took us two whole days last summer for the video-shooting, and quite few months for the editing and sound-mixing. Thank you so much for all the superb efforts, and wish it will serve as a clear demonstration of how a handmade journal is created from zero to completion.

Stitches fastened, knots at spine.Needle and thread travel through paper piles. Siuyuett (Teresa Tsang) sees book-binding a way to untangle the knots in her mind where memories and emotions intertwined. Soothing and warming the cloth case is to the hands as the process to the soul. She draws inspiration from everyday objects turning ordinary elements into binding materials and creates notebooks that are one of a kind. Others see great talents and creativity revealed by the graceful hands.
She extended her interest into a career as a full-time book-binding artist in 2009 and started conducting workshop sessions in the same year to share her passion and skills with those who also love the craft. She believes that everyone has an artist buried in the soul. One just needs to act upon the chance and let it run free.
