Ann Hui, representing the new wave of “made in Hong Kong” films, and the indefatigable Johnny To and Herman Yau, are just some of the names you will be hearing about in the 6th Week of Hong Kong Cinema.
With the collaboration of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Brussels, Casa Asia and the Filmoteca are once again presenting this cycle, which has been growing in fans and followers of films from China.
And that is because the Hong Kong film industry is the second busiest in the world, after Hollywood, and ahead of Bollywood.
The cycle opens with Brian Tse‘s cartoon McDull Kungfu Ding Ding Dong on Friday evening, 25 February.
From then until 6 March, will be screened Night and Fog in Tin Shui Wai, by Ann Hui, Crime Story, by Kirk Wong, with Jackie Chan, and The Storm Warriors, from the brothers Oxide and Danny Pang, Sitges regulars.
