Movies To GO
Tai Kwun Movie Steps X Hong Kong Film Archive ─ A Cinematic Portrait of Song & Dance
Programme Promo New!
The Hong Kong Film Archive is launching another presentation of history and fun at Tai Kwun, a follow-up to the earlier ‘Hong Kong Heritage Museum x Hong Kong Film Archive — Hong Kong Pop 60+' film screening and post-screening talk series. This time around, the topic is Hong Kong musicals and the singing and dancing will take place in Central.
Musical films of Hong Kong are a magnificent confluence of many elements. Essential among them are various forms of popular culture, such as Cantonese opera, Huangmei diao, Mandarin pop, Cantonese pop and western popular music, culminating into a glorious manifestation of cinematic art. In July and August, the Archive special programme ‘Movies To Go', in our first collaboration with Tai Kwun, will feature five musical films in free screenings at the Laundry Steps at Tai Kwun.
It is our hope that audiences will be inspired by the artistic dedication of different generations of Hong Kong filmmakers while enjoying the many splendors in the development of Hong Kong musical films.
See you at the Steps!
