Splendid Isolation: Hong Kong Cinema 1949–1997
Sonntag | 18. März 2018 | 19:00 Uhr

An exceptional cinematic movement of unrivaled creative force and imagination developed in post-war Hong Kong, which at the time was still a Crown colony. “Splendid Isolation” traces a line from the little-known early era of Hong Kong cinema, via the popular genre films and auteur works of the 1970s and ’80s, to the offshoots of the 1990s, which became part of Chinese film production in general after the colony’s handover in 1997. This program gives a unique insight into Hong Kong’s multi-faceted cinema, presenting the films in their original 35-mm format.

The program will be accompanied by introductions. We are particularly pleased to welcome the Hong Kong star director Ann Hui on March 24.
