When Hong Kong teenager Chi Gau Shin (Tse Wai Kit, School on Fire) wins a trip to Japan, he unleashes a chain of events that will soon bring him from the secluded fishing village of Po Toi O to Tokyo, by way of Kamagasaki – the so-called slums of Osaka. On the way, he connects with a barely competent tour guide named Kumi and the shapeshifting, loud-mouthed and loveable thief Akane. Upon returning home with this merry band of schemers, Gau Shin finds his family of resourceful counterfeiters on the verge of expropriation. A multinational conglomerate led by a ruthless Japanese developer has found the village, and is determined to raze it to build the new center of world trade! (Masashi Yamamoto, Japan/Hong Kong, 1990, 120 min.) In Japanese and Cantonese with English subtitles

University of the Arts has updated its COVID policies for visitors and events, effective April 1. Visitors to UArts' campus will no longer be required to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19, and all capacity restrictions have been lifted. Lightbox Film Center will now operate at 100 percent capacity. Guests will still be required to wear a high-quality and well-fitting mask while on campus.

Masks are still required at all times. Visitors are strongly encouraged to wear N95, KN95, KF94 or three-ply surgical masks while on UArts' campus. Cloth masks are still permitted. All masks should fit tight to the face and securely cover the nose and mouth.
