[Business of Design Week ; Film review : "Flushed Away" ; International Festival of Inclusive Arts] (05 Dec 2006)


Last week was Business of Design Week. Many of the world's top international designers were in Hong Kong for the fifth such annual event to give us their ideas and stimulate our own thoughts, on elegance, aesthetics, function, and how to make money from them. "Flushed Away" is an animated movie about a pampered pet rat named Roddy who finds himself on the other side of the plumbing when he's flushed into the depths of the sewers. It was made by the teams behind "Shrek", "Chicken Run", and "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit". It may be animated, but the voices belong to cinema's leading thespians. Gary Pollard reviews it. A festival taking place in Hong Kong this week, is focusing on opening up new horizons for people with disabilities. It's called The International Festival of Inclusive Arts, it's attracting participants from all over the world, it features plenty of different art events, and it got off to a spectacular start on Saturday with more than 10,000 people around the harbour banging the drum for inclusive arts.
