Hong Kong film-maker Yan Yan Mak describes The Journal Of Moonlight And Morning as a romantic thriller.
'It's a love story painted with blood, horror and the super-natural,' she says.
The project, which was also presented at the Hong Kong Asia Film Financing Forum (HAF) is about a 16-year-old girl who suffers from schizophrenia and two -conflicting personalities.
During the day she is Morning, successful at school and a favourite among her teachers. In the evening, she is Moonlight, a prostitute with a penchant for brutally murdering her unfortunate clients.
The police discover a journal that uncovers the dual world of Morning and Midnight and are shocked to find a third person's notes in the book.
Mak made a splash on the festival scene in 2001 with GeGe, which won the FIPRESCI prize at the Hong Kong International Film Festival and the POVEGLIA Award at Venice's Critics' Week.
Her second feature, Butterfly (Hu Die), played at festivals in 2004 including Venice and Taiwan's Golden Horse Film Festival.
