Paul Wong, 2008
8 min., colour, stereo, English, Cantonese, single-channel w/ credits
Sally is a portrait, a love ballad. The artist gazes at beautiful Sally as she relaxes in her bathrobe in the sumptuous suite of the China Club in Beijing. Always behind the camera, Wong is uninhibited as ever as he crafts an intimate portrait. Recorded in Hong Kong and Beijing.
Sally is part of a collection of short experiential documentary style works released in 2008 that includes Chelsea Hotel, and Perfect Day. These auto/biographical portraits are often programmed together.
Sally was screened at 2008 Reel Asian International Film Festival, Toronto.
2009 Reel Pride Film Festival, Winnipeg, and the 2012 Prismatic Festival, Halifax.
