Kitty is interested in exploring the linkage between human and society.

As an artist, Kitty has always wondered what separates people and what brings people together. She is interested in how animation can be seen as an art form, not just to entertain, but also as a creative medium for artists to express their inner world.

Most of her projects are motivated by a personal approach to her subjects. From Seaweeds, Neon Kong, and her BA graduation film CHA to her final MA film Apathy,  Kitty likes to start with expressing her voice through the moving image. She likes to create a world with different characters and give them life through a range of frame-by-frame techniques. Growing up in a busy city like Hong Kong, she often found people's voices being lost in the crowd, and therefore wanted to search for them and try to express them through drawings.

Apathy

An apathetic girl realised she had always been sweeping her emotion under the carpet – she is not apathetic, who is she?


The idea of Apathy comes from my personal experience. I have always had difficulty expressing my own emotion, and finding my voice. This film is for those who also experience the same feeling like me, the powerless feeling when you have something to say, but couldn't or don't dare to say them out loud.
