Once Upon a Rooftop
Sybil Wendler / Hong Kong / 2010 / 30 min
This document of the world of Hong Kong rooftop dwellers invites audiences into the lives of fan dancers, immigrants and young students with dreams of becoming doctors and guitar players. Their lives are tenuous, especially with eviction imminent, but filled with an enduring hope for a brighter future as they try their best to lay down roots atop a city's concrete tenements. Liz Cabrera ONCE UPON A ROOFTOP is the winner of CAAM's Loni Ding Award.
