Half feature, half documentary, shot with amateur actors, People on Sundays is an outstanding work of the German silent movie avant-garde, directed by Curt and Robert Siodmak, Edgar G. Ulmer and Fred Zinnemann and based on a screenplay by Billy Wilder. The film follows the lives of a group of Berlin residents during a summer day at the Wannsee beach in the inter-war period. It is a pivotal film in the development not only of German cinema but also of Hollywood cinema. Trio Bravo+’s score takes up the easygoing, tempting atmosphere of a summer day and adds new rhythm to the images. This Movie-Live-Concert makes you hear and see, forget time and space and arouses the desire to dive directly into this summer idyll.

In addition, a locally produced movie Here is Macau will be played. “Macau” is the theme of the movie. Five directors -- Leung Yi-On/Tou Kin-Hon, Ao Ieong Weng Fong, Yves Etienne Sonolet, Chu Iao Ian and Chan Ka-keong, are invited to create a story of 2-minute each. No discussion has ever been held among the directors on the contents of the story, but coincidently they all depict Macau from a “visual” angle: the city in day time, in night time, through different patterns, through the eyes of stray cats and through the vision of two persons. Trio Bravo+ composes the music. When images and music meet, what will the view be?
