About this Event

How does language shape identity? What role does handwriting play in the digital age? “Hanzi” is a feature-length documentary exploring the relationship between reading and daily life through the lens of modern Chinese typography, by interviewing various font designers, including Akira Kobayashi, a Japanese renowned Roman font designer and Sammy Or, a veteran Chinese font designer based in Hong Kong.
