“Nervous?” – “A little.” Two young men shooting hoops somewhere in Brooklyn. In the gradually gathering dusk, their shadows dance, entwined, to the cadence of basketball meeting pavement. Farewell is in the air. Emotions emerge to the surface. Tentatively, gently, director Livia Huang’s densely atmospheric film tells of desire and intimacy through gazes and gestures. What is memory, what is perhaps merely a dream? Or is everything dance in the end?


The Chinese-American filmmaker was born in Baltimore, USA in 1990. She studied at Columbia University and at Brooklyn College in New York. She was awarded the Flies Collective Film Grant to make Who Can Predict What Will Move You which screened in Generation in 2020. Her work has been screened at international festivals including Rotterdam, the BFI Flare – London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival and Outfest in Los Angeles.
