In an extended roll call of local made movies, FP writer Wai-leung Lai tells an integrated story of his history of local film viewing, an assertion of the right of a serious non-expert viewer’s voice to be heard. After, popular cinema is a specific way to connect with the ordinary people on the level of living. And after all, Readership Theories have covered much ground in film and media studies in the past 30 something years in the academia. 黎偉亮一個人睇戲的故事，追述多年來看港產片的心跡，說明了用心看戲也就是用心活著。一個用心的觀眾絕對有權在「影評」的建制圈外肯定表述的聲音。
Finding an ensemble of words to give form, thickness and density to flickering thoughts and fleeting sentiments is Ryan Chung’s persistent experiment in his “let the mind speak” series — speaking for its own sake, this time, “loneliness” must imprint its presence… What is the vocabulary of our own loneliness? 表述是為了堅守表述自由的維度。孤單是怎樣的？孤單的語彙是怎樣的？說了就是。鍾樹仁的思維自說自話。
Is it a dream, nightmare, mind escape, or transcendent float in time-space? It takes a fictional moment to fully embody Michael Leung’s many episodes of intergalactic traversal, to regain the potency to enter a boundless performative space. 虛擬不一定是逃脫，反而是全情貫注的為跨界、跨域、跨族類的慾望賦予實質、形骸，以至可在其中遊蕩潛行，延展無邊際的演述空間。
她（黎肖嫻）寫了一首別人的情詩。已沒有話可述說愛情，只知道「想」之際自覺存在多一點。找文學對愛情的書寫，總覺女作家和男作家的視野不盡相同。沒有性別基要主義。只是好奇。想聽讀者們的回贈，讓她不落入自說自話的荒涼。Linda Lai wrote a poem contemplating the phenomenology of being in love and losing it. Great quotes from the internet were grabbed in search of the male protagonist’s voice, says she. Let’s have a conversation!

In these COVID-19 days, “underlying conditions” undermine those with chronic diseases in fighting the virus. Rather than a sheer physiological condition, Michael Leung quotes Rene Gabri: what are considered pre-existing conditions are “those imposed on people by capitalism and the state, making some more vulnerable than others (during the pandemic).” What are the possibilities of being immune not just a personal matter but a collective act?「本有」狀況？「既有」狀態？還是「固有」狀態？梁志剛在英回顧法國行程的經驗，體悟藝術家 Rene Gabri 的申述：既有狀態其實是資本主義和國家政府加諸我們身上的，其結果是有些人總比另一些人「脆弱」，例如在疫情高漲的時候。如是，「既有」的，因政策管治的上綱下達，便成了「固有」的境況。往下想，「免疫」或「免疫系統」的出現，是否可以超越「個人」層面而成為「協作」的、社區群體的？
The pictograms for this 101 moving image classic show more than just the exemplary precision of continuity editing and a classical 3-act structure in plotting. These pictograms function as analytical tools to show how the intensifying bond between the boy and the balloon evolves; to superimpose the 1955-56 location of the film Red Balloon onto the contemporary map of Paris, … and to single out the swerving energies and roughening emotions of the story world in mood-board like representation.《紅氣球》是學過活動影像拍攝的入門經典，或許是這樣，我們可能錯過了敘事藝術上的微細質感。氣球於小孩的動人關係不用質疑了，可是甚麼叫我們感動？這裡四個圖形分析，從唯物的層面揭示創作者的藝術心思，著我們不再輕易走漏眼。
An assembly line of human figures grinding human figures for food, dolls feed dolls, doll eats dolls. Ironing, flattering, being dressed, being cut up, being tamed… Beyond Svankmajer’s dramatization of carnivorous acts, Steven Tsang sees the politics of nonsense, which the animator structured against the paradigm of human civilization. The animator wants us to see differently, and asks a different sort of questions in following a narrative unique to his use of stop-motion animation. 看到喂小娃娃的大娃娃就知道是女的，看到舞動的水手裝就自動知道是男的。再看下去，人吃人，有血有肉的黑貓時不時推倒積木，一面是歷史砌圖，另一面是迷宮的路線…最終，它被鎖在籠裏動彈不得。屋子裡一個「人」也沒有，卻充滿了人類的活動。物件長年累月吸收了人類強加它們身上的「用途」、「價值」，也穿背著人類的規範，像鬼魅的模仿著我們的「正常」活動。曾俊良看到歷史、文明、性別的社會結構。能看到，因為看穿了動畫大師史文梅耶以物件為本的獨特敘事結構和跨媒想像。
A set of 3 black-and-white photographs on light-boxes speaks of Harmanjeet Singh’s warning on our destruction of the world. It’s a closed circuit, the looping of disasters: personal life-style, environmental pollution, illness and viral infection, extinction of the species, the world’s future… at Ventriloquists…Thinking narratively, 4-19 July 2020. 三張黑白照，串通個人、環境、體內、疾病、地球的未來。因與果是循環。
