The Cinema of Lee Sun-fung
Lee Sun-fung was one of the emblematic directors that predominated Cantonese cinema of the 50s and 60s. An intellectual himself, he not only directed, but also scripted many of his films, with quite a few adaptations from Western and Chinese classics. Particularly valuable are the director's notes he left behind that give us a glimpse of how filmmakers of his time deliberated over filmmaking and attempted to strike a balance between the market and their own ideals.
