In 2012, the Hong Kong International Film Festival invited Tsai Ming-Ling to make the opening short film. Having grown up with Hong Kong’s popular culture, Tsai Ming-Liang decided to pay homage by making a “Walker” film, contrasting the Walker’s slowness with the frenzied pace of Hong Kong’s cosmopolitan life. The film ends with a song by Hong Kong actor and singer Samuel Hui, who was Tsai Ming-Liang’s idol during his youth. The film was invited to be the closing short film for the Cannes Film Festival in 2012.
