In 1982, when the British and Chinese government officials started the negotiation concerning the handover of Hong Kong, many Hong Kong people decided to immigrate due to a sense of insecurity about their future. At that time, the mother and siblings of the director already moved to Los Angeles in the USA, whereas he stayed in Hong Kong with his father, who became a so-called “astronaut” with his family being separated. However, when the director went all the way to the US for reunion with his father, his family was no longer the same. Years later, the marriage of the director's sister in 2014 triggered him to reminisce about their post-immigration family past. Through the camera lens, he reexamined their relationship that was filled with betrayals and regrets. Reunification captured how much pressure Hong Kong families from the previous generation suffered from, in terms of politics, economics and emotions. Similarly, exploring the theme of “family” from a personal perspective with an overwhelming emotional intensity, Reunion echoed last year's IFVA Gold Award winning documentary 32+4.
