Wong Kar-Wai Film Festival

Goals

Wong Kar-Wai is a renowned Hong Kong film director, famous for combining lush beautiful scenery with condensed and gritty cityscapes. This project asks us to make materials for a hypothetical film festival that celebrates and highlights a body of work from a chosen director.

Approach

I started by watching a series of Wong Kar-Wai movies and looking for common themes and motifs. When making his films, he writes the script at the same time as he shoots, so the stories form organically and have recurring ideas of lost love. I took his themes of loneliness and lost memories to inspire the design aesthetic used to fabricate the products and materials for the film festival.
