The Seven Silences : Anger

The Seven Silences: Anger, adapted from Seven Deadly Sins written by Wong Bik Wan, is a story about faceless people in Hong Kong: prostitutes, unemployed workers, thieves and charwomen. They hive in a dilapidated public house. In one net of fate, they bear indifference and social injustice. While humanity degrading, the reality turns wild.

Somewhere out there

In Astrology, the Pluto means destruction and rebirth. It’s the power in the depth of one’s heart after the accumulation for years:

Tomorrow will always comes,
Yesterday you can never throw away.
Just stop,
Every time you don’t want to be yourselves.
You could cry, for your lives.
追困實驗室x手放開工作團隊PDLab x HandsOff Workers
Trying to pursue difficulties and then breaking them, some TNUA students composed this PDLab. They’re devoted to describing the real feelings of human being, and finding some images which belong to themselves in this crowded and chaotic world.

HandsOff Workers
Nothing good happening but tomorrow is coming.
We(adult boy n girl) can do nothing but do something.
We(teen woman n man) are hopeless but we think,
one great(or bad) show, can change the world(maybe), for you, for us, it might be.
