无厘头 (mo lei tau): a phenomenon of absurdist comedy that dominated 1990's Hong Kong cinema. Also known by the idiom "nine doesn't follow eight".
Through the lens of 无厘头, NINEEIGHT reflects on personal fractures and the meaning of "motherland" at times of transition--political, social, geographical.
Dear HK: at this fateful time, I would like to live out all of your wildest fantasies.
