Updating the story more than 20 years on from the award-winning 2001 film, TAPE (2023) transposes the setting of Richard Linklater’s groundbreaking classic from the US to Hong Kong in the story of 3 high school friends whose reunion 15 years on uncovers a terrible secret from their past. Starring Kenny Kwan, Selena Lee, and Adam Pak as the present day characters, and 2022 Hong Kong Film Awards winner Mason Fung, Summer Chan, and Angus Yeung as their younger selves, TAPE explores the cultural implications for sexual assault victims in Hong Kong within an environment that has yet to reckon with #MeToo like no other Hong Kong produced film has done before.

Touching upon themes of power, manipulation, and the subjective nature of truth, and set to a score by acclaimed British musician Keaton Henson, TAPE confronts a societal taboo while showing how people remain trapped in time until they can face and heal the wounds of the past.
