Authored by research fellows and staff members of the Centre for Humanities Research (CHR), a new book Hong Kong Memories in Cinema has been recently published by the Hong Kong Film Archive.
Based on the outcome of a collaborative research project between the CHR and the Hong Kong Film Archive over the past two years, Hong Kong Memories in Cinema is a Chinese-English bilingual review of the development of Hong Kong cinema in the past century. It also aims to provide an overview of the Hong Kong cinema to international readers. The book was authored by research fellows and staff members, with assistance of Lingnan students in collecting research materials.
The book is bundled with a DVD that contains rarely seen film footage of Hong Kong in the early 20th century, as well as selected film excerpts from the post-war years to post-1997, reflecting the city’s social and ethnographical changes.
The book and DVD set is now available at local bookstores.
