Made in Hong Kong: Films from a New Decade

12 Oct 200716 Oct 2007

This month we have a short season of films made in Hong Kong over the past 10 years, since the city was handed back to China. This decade has seen the film industry in Hong Kong go from strength to strength, creating a new identity while looking back at the area's history. Among these films, gangland thrillers, a lush musical and a bittersweet piece of animation tackle such issues as identity, the legacy of colonialism and how Hong Kong reacts to mainland China.

With thanks to Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London and the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society for their co-operation in making the films available, and to Applause, Panorama Distributions, Celestial, MVP, Man 5 Productions, Golden Scene, Wide Vision, Universe, BMA and HK Film Archive for their support.
