[11:30am - 11:45am | Pre-screening mindfulness experience (15 mins)]
Do you watch movies with full attention? Although your eyes are on the movie, perhaps you are not really watching it. This time, we hope you will be able to fully enjoy the movie so before the film starts, we arrange a 15-minute mindful practice. Let us immerse our body and mind in this moment, and welcome everything that the film conveys.
[11:45am - 12:55pm | Movie Screening (70 mins)]
People in the city seem to be alienated from each other, but we actually get comfort by occasional contact or a small touch. Growing up, there may be some unforgettable parts along the journey. As we revisit our past, there are memories that make us who we are today.

[12:55pm - 2:00pm | Post-screening Interactive experience & sharing (50 mins) ]
In most occasions, post-screening sharing is often about the film itself, and we rarely pay attention to the mental feelings that the film brings to us. Through the guidance of mindful practice, it can help relate ourselves with the film more and let our body and soul speak for us.
