It was in 1976
the Last typhoon I got to participate in as someone interested in film making
we followed our Teacher who tried showing us how to film when N.10 signal was up
a few months later
I began taking my Audio Visual program in Canada
there was no typhoon in Canada
the extreme conditions did exist
we ended up filming under 30 degrees Celsius
Fourty two years passed
I found myself recalling my first film making course in Hong Kong
my passion for film making is still there
though I somehow tend to paint and draw more often
Mangkhut residues ends with a note:
of the palm tree with fruit
that we found on the beach near where we reside
nostalgia of some recent film of my youthful days?
of the beautiful blind girl and her pretended cousin
in The film ‘ The Window’ by Lung Kong?
Those were the days?
or are they still my reality
lived truly within?
How important is visual impact
in a young person’s heart?
perhaps the residues are always one’s passion
or The shadows
as what Josephine Siu in the film says
with which we can never be rid of
And the colours of the shadows
Bernadette recalling her past with gratitude
