of Authenticity
As Time Goes By
Adapted from director Alex Law's own childhood, Echoes of the Rainbow is an ode to old Hong Kong, a nostalgic reflection on the transience of life, fortune and happiness through stories of hardship, love, hope, and resilience of a working class family in 1960s Hong Kong. In this heartwarming scene, Mr. Law, a shoemaker, gathers with his family to enjoy a simple dinner of plain rice and vegetables. The success of this film helped revoke a government decree to demolish the heritage buildings on Wing Lee Street, Sheung Wan, which served as principal location for the film.

Alvin c.k. Lam
Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Alvin recalls picking up a paintbrush long before chopsticks. In 2020, while experimenting with watercolor urban sketching, Alvin inadvertently embarked on a journey of 'rediscovering' his hometown as he uncovers untold stories along the way —often in the most ordinary, familiar, yet most overlooked places. Each painting brings to life tales of (extra)ordinary people whose lifetime of devotion and resilience weave into the rise of Hong Kong and the rich cultural heritage that makes Hong Kong so uniquely Hong Kong.
