The Cloud in Her Room (Ta fang jian li de yun), dir. Zheng Lu Xinyuan, Hong Kong / China 2020, 98 min., Chinese with English subtitles


A visual diary loosely based on the filmmaker’s memories, Zheng Lu Xinyuan’s pulsating first feature weaves reality, fiction and experimental reveries into a generational reflection on love, returning and impermanence. 
 
When Muzi returns home to Hangzhou for Chinese New Year, she finds the city covered in mist. Failing to create meaningful connections with those around her, she takes comfort only in solitude and deserted city spaces at night. Intimacy briefly arises around cigarettes, food, songs and whistles, but no one or nothing ever accesses Muzi's melancholic state of mind – except for the camera. 
 
The screening is followed by a Q&A with director Zheng Lu Xinyuan, hosted by Festival Coordinator Raquel Morais.
