The 39th Portland International Film Festival: LITTLE BIG MASTER

Little Big Master

Faced with a broken education system and misguided parents and school board, headmistress Lui Wai-hung resigns her post at a prestigious private school and takes on the job running a failing rural kindergarten. With only five children enrolled, it’s slated for shutdown if one of them drops out, and because the kids have poor parents and tough lives, she figures her job will be to ease their transition. But after meeting the kids she vows to keep the doors open by any means necessary. Based on a true story, Director Adrian Kwan fashions an enlightening, moving and culturally complex chronicle of one woman’s from-the-heart fight for social equity. (112 mins.)

Sponsored by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, San Francisco.
