Hong Kong director Angie Chen offers a lively portrait about the artist Yank Wong. A complex man who resists definition, Wong is a painter, art director, set designer, writer, musician, and photographer, a true renaissance man who expresses his creativity in multiple forms. More than a portrait of an artist and the creative life, the film is also a high-octane cat- and - mouse game between filmmaker and subject: one tries to capture, the other evades.
