Inspired by the true story of Hong Kong’s first teenage baseball team, director Chan Chi-fat’s Weeds on Fire proves a surprisingly relevant youth sports drama. In the 1980s, two childhood friends join the Shatin Martins, a Band 3 school baseball team managed by the school principal (Liu Kai-chi). From these humble beginnings, the boys experience camaraderie, fall in love and make fateful decisions that resonate throughout their lives amid a changing Hong Kong and its sporting world.

Additional screening on 28 May, 2:30pm at Hong Kong Film Archive (as HKIFF Cine Fan Programme). Tickets available at URBTIX now.
