Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window
Andrew Hevia, filmmaker
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 thought he would make is not 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, Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window playfully tweaks the conventions of the introspective genre of auto-fiction, using deadpan humor to explore romance, personal trauma and culture shock like no other film before it.
