The Core Curriculum and General Education Office (CCGEO) launched a unique short film series entitled “Delta Four” on 12 and 19 March, bringing four specially produced film pieces curated for the 14th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition (Hong Kong) to Lingnan’s campus.
In his opening address, Prof Stephen Chan Ching-kiu, Associate Vice-President (Academic Affairs) and Director of Core Curriculum and General Education, said the CCGEO would continue to collaborate with various external parties to bring well-selected film pieces and organise relevant activities for Lingnan students as well as the local community.
The “Delta Four” series comprised four short films namely “Rest Is Pending”, “SAR2”, “Connection” and “Over the Wall”, featuring various important social, developmental and architectural issues pertinent to the Pearl River Delta Region where we live in. Young film directors Mr Ng Ho-yin and Mr Wong Siu-pong as well as guest speakers Mr Alvin Yip and Ms Anna Kwong from the architecture profession were invited to share their insights and experiences with both Lingnan and local secondary students at the post-screening discussions.
Heartfelt acknowledgements went to the Hong Kong Institute of Architects and the Hong Kong Art Development Council for supporting the collaboration.
