During the community presentation, she introduced a cocoa game that we could play as a means to explore different directions in her research. As part of “The Asia Cocoa Project” curated  by Caroline Ha Thuc, Pan Lu collaborated with artist Bo Wang and designed an interactive board game that encourages participants to take on the roles of diverse historical figures. These characters include an overseas Chinese merchant, a female revolutionary soldier, a French missionary, a German anthropologist, a Japanese informer, a Chinese military officer, and a native Li weaver. 


Dr. Pan Lu, a filmmaker and scholar residing in Hong Kong, earned her PhD from the Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Hong Kong. Subsequently, in 2015, she became a part of the Department of Chinese Culture at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.


Her research focuses on cultural and cross-cultural analysis of diverse textual forms. Beyond her academic pursuits, Pan is engaged as a curator and video artist. Collaborating with Bo Wang, she co-directed essay films such as Traces of an Invisible City (2016), Miasma, Plants and Export Paintings (2017), and Many Undulating Things (2019).
