Summaries:
 
Offside
Juan is a lower-class young man from Ecuador who dreams of emigrating from his country. He tries to find the money he needs to transform his dream into reality and ends up involved in criminal activity, pushed by desperation and the social, economic and moral collapse of his environment. His shyness and unrequited love, combined with the poverty of his family and the general corruption, all bring Juan to the point of committing crimes to get the money he needs to achieve his golden illusion: abandon Ecuador and try his luck on another continent.

Perhaps Love
Acclaimed director Peter Chan takes the helm for this lavish, award winning musical concerning the love triangle between a handsome actor, his beautiful co-star, and a talented film director. Lin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) and his ex-lover Sun (Zhou Xun) are shooting a movie for celebrated director Nie Wen (Jacky Cheung) when the flames of their former passion are gradually rekindled. A charismatic director who has poured his entire heart and soul into making a movie about a passionate love triangle, Nie finds his entire production about to collapse as Lin does everything in his power to win back the ravishing Sun.

Ostriches and Silent Flowers
 
Japanese Painting  by  Kotaro Fukui
 
This exhibition is composed of the eloquent Ostrich Painting and the Silent Flowers Series. In the Ostrich Paintings, Fukui uses ostriches as a means for exploring opposites and investigates movement through line. In the Silent Flowers Series, the artist studies the way in which natual light moves and its consequential effects on the natual world. Steeped in the tradition of Nihonga and the modern Japanese avantgarde, Kotaro's vision and talent unfolds through arange of materials, lyrical expression, and historical influences of traditional Japanese art.
