d.e.v.i.a.n.c.e. is one of the
main music bands that I’m following very closely for my documentary
Roll Girls, but it’s not a rock band at all. The common point between
and rock music is that, the two members of the band,
Hong Kong director Pang Ho-cheung 彭浩翔,who shot the trailer of the 10th Far East Film Festival(starring Sunny Lau) was invited in Udine - for the fourth time I think - between the 19th and the 23th of April 2008 .

It’s been already ten days since I came from Hong Kong. I was there between the 16th and the 29th of March 2008, which was a very short time for me, because I didn’t really do all the things that I wanted to do when I was there.
