There's a lot to do this weekend. Firstly, Cinemathèque Passion is already opened and now showing Nobuhiro Yamashita's Over the Fence. Then, there's the opening of two exhibitions art Ox Warehouse. To top it all, there's a promising dance workshop.
The final countdown has begun. Macau's Cinemathéque — Passion will finally open tomorrow as a regular independent cinema house, starting what I hope will be years of joy for all cinema lovers in Macau.
