Cyberpunk Here and Now #1: Kongkee x Albert Tam

General

Hong Kong comic artist Kongkee and writer Albert Tam both created what one could call Hong Kong’s own cyberpunk. Following the success of the first two episodes of Dragon’s Delusion, Kongkee and his crew keep working towards an animated feature questioning the essence of soul in a port city where humans, robots and cyborgs cohabitate. Tam’s novel Humanoid Software imagines a dystopian future of Hong Kong through mysteries and warfare across virtual and real worlds. During this intimate sharing, Kongkee will explain how Dragon’s Delusion creates a new ‘Hong Kong Punk’ style by drawing inspiration from various genres including cyberpunk and will screen the latest work-in-progress, while Tam will share his take on how cyberpunk novels and movies evolved over the decades and became a major influence in his writing. Conversations between Kongkee and Tam, as well as discussions with the audience will follow.
