Cross-border lives, a contrast between Hongkong and Mainland China, exclusive online screening of “The Crossing” and QA session with the director Bai Xue.

Winner of the “Favourite Independent Film” category at the Guangzhou Student Film Festival in 2019. The Crossing follows Peipei, a schoolgirl who has taken to smuggling iPhones over the Hong Kong-Shenzhen border every day to earn money. The customs officials do not give her a second thought, due to her school uniform and her innocent face, however, Peipei soon finds herself out of her depth.

Inspired by the stories of “Cross Border Children”, The Crossing is director Bai Xue’s breakout feature film and expertly uses realism to portray the film's narrative. Bai Xue uses this to epitomise the struggles faced by teenagers in an ever changing and evolving China.
