1 form y separately published work icon Drifting Petals Clara Law , Eddie Fong Ling-Ching , ( dir. Clara Law ) Australia : Lunar Films , 2021 23253862 2021 single work film/TV

'Drifting Petals is inspired by the novels of W. G. Sebald and the meandering aesthetic of classical Chinese gardens; combining memoir, fiction, travelogue, history and personal biography. Law and her long-term writing-producing partner Eddie Fong embark on an entirely fresh and unfettered approach to the creative process over four years. It begins with a filmmaker and a piano student, who first meet in Australia. Two stories intertwine as the characters try to make sense of a past imbued with mystery in Macau, and an uncertain future in Hong Kong. The living and the dead move freely through this loose and charming filmic journey.'

Clara Law ) Australia : Madman Cinema , 2004 Z1573017 2004 single work film/TV (taught in 2 units) An 'average' Australian family decides to help in a small way by writing to Ali, a fifteen-year-old Afghan boy detained at Port Hedland, unaccompanied by any relatives. This letter would prove to be the catalyst for a three-year on-going battle with Australian authorities to get Ali, then a minor, out of detention. Filmmakers Clara Law and Eddie Fong contacted Trish in September 2002 after reading the newspaper story and decided to make a film about Ali's case.

The 'goddess' in this film refers to the Citroën DS (nicknamed 'Déesse'), a famous French car first produced in the fifties. The story concerns J. M., a young, well-to-do Japanese man who desires owning a Déesse. When one comes up for sale in Australia via the internet, J. M. travels there to buy it. Upon reaching his destination, however, he finds the seller and his wife dead and their house inhabited by a seventeen-year-old girl. He initially runs out in horror but returns in order to find out if the car is still there. He and the girl soon afterwards undertake a five-day drive into the outback. It also becomes 'a trip back in time into the early youth of the girl and into her family's chronicle'.
