Hong Kong crime noir set in the eve of handover in 1997.

With directing legend Johnnie To as mentor, Trivis.a which takes it title from the Buddhist notion of the ‘three root poisons’ of greed, anger and ignorance, is the work of by three up-and-coming filmmakers tackling three crime figures all trying to deal with the upheaval as British administered Hong Kong is set to be handed over to China in the summer of 1997. It’s a vibrant portmanteau film that speaks both of the old and the new, with regular To collaborators in the crew to help give it a unified sense of gritty energy.
