Directed by Andrew Hevia
In Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window, what starts as a traditional documentary about the Hong Kong art world becomes an intimate and wryly comedic study of loneliness and alienation within an increasingly globalized world.
Upon realizing that the film he intended to make isn’t going to happen, filmmaker Andrew Hevia turns the camera on himself while continuing to engage with Hong Kong’s art community. Shot in a ‘first person’ style and narrated by a text-to-speech robot, Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window playfully tweaks the conventions of the introspective genre of auto-fiction, using deadpan humor in a postmodern exploration of romance, personal trauma and culture shock like no other film before it.
“An evocative personal journey and study of globalization and loneliness,” Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window is directed by Andrew Hevia, a Co-Producer on Academy Award Winner for Best Motion Picture Moonlight and edited by Emmy Award winner Carlos Rivera.
Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window had its World Premiere at SXSW, where it was nominated for the Adam Yauch Hörnblowér Award. The film made its International Premiere at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen at the end of March.
