Bamboo TheatreHong Kong | 2019 | 76min | DCP | Color | Documentary
After the opening scene where a boat carrying bamboos crosses the water, we know what they are used for. The workers create a huge theater by weaving bamboos directly. In the theater built like that, a spectacular Beijing opera is performed for several days, and people enjoy festivals and rituals.
On-and-behind-the-stage, in-and-out of the-theater, all become sacred and entertaining places, and there is a world that “entertains both God and the people,” as someone said in the film. The bamboo theater, which had been transported and built like that, was dismantled two months later and moved back to the next destination by ship. The film portrays the culture of a unique traditional theater that still continues in Hong Kong. (NAM Da-eun)
