Youth Matters
The Taste of Youth 少年滋味
showing at cinemas near you from 2 June
It is an age old story of parent versus child! This is a film about the generation gap, with parents expecting their children to follow a well trodden path of university and career and young people wanting instead to discover who they are and what they really want. As can be imagined, conflict ensues.

The Taste of Youth follows nine young people and hears them share their hopes and dreams with award winning Director, King Wai Cheung. This film is really a conversational letter to Hong Kong. Produced by the Federation's own M21, this is a must-see film for everyone who remembers their own conflicts with parents, and wants to understand today's young people better.

Public showings begin 2 June 2016 at Broadway (IFC, The ONE, Cinematheque, PALACE apm, Hollywood, Kwai Fong, Kingswood Ginza in Tin Shui Wai)
UA (Cityplaza in Taikoo);
MCL (Telford, Kornhill, Metro City in Tseung Kwan O, Festival Grand Cinema)
