"Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window"
is a Whimsical View of Art, Culture Shock, and Personal Connections

Davie, FL. - A filmmaker goes to Hong Kong to learn about art. Things do not go well. LEAVE THE BUS THROUGH THE BROKEN WINDOW begins as a traditional documentary but soon transitions into a study of loneliness and alienation in a globalized world. In a special presentation, Bailey Hall is hosting a film screening with the director, Andrew Hevia, who will present a Q&A with the audience following the screening. The public is invited to attend on October 17th, 2019 at 7:30pm.
Coming off the end of a relationship, filmmaker Andrew Hevia went to Hong Kong to make a documentary about the international Art Basel fair as a form of escape. But, unfortunately, his personal baggage came with him. "You are here to make a film," a voiceover says. "Why did you think this was a good idea?" Shot in a first-person style, Hevia probes the contemporary art scene and confronts failures in his travel logistics and personal relationships through lively and entertaining storytelling.
"I wanted to make a film about art that didn't explain what the art was about," says Hevia, "but instead reflected the art back in the style, approach and narrative of the film itself... The result is a deeply personal film about my own limitations and emotional turmoil set in a world-class city undergoing a seismic political and cultural transition. Hopefully, it's also fun to watch."
This event is made possible through the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, a South Arts program. Since its inception in 1975, Southern Circuit has brought some of best independent filmmakers and their films from around the country to communities throughout the South. The program is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
