Action! Mr. Lai!
Cameral! The Birth of Modern Chinese Cinema
Mr. Lai Man-wai (1893-1953), was one of the pioneers of Chinese cinema. He witnessed several epochs of modern Chinese history: from the fall of the Qing Dynasty to the birth of the Republic of China, and from the War against Japanese invasion to the founding of The People's Republic of China. Received westernised education in Hong Kong, he spent his life as scriptwriter, director, actor, cinematographer, producer and head of studio, and produced a large number of quality films. He nurtured talents and stars of the camera, and advocated the use of advanced cinematography and film processing technology. His passion, ingeniousness and pursuit of the cinema of excellence made him the Father of Hong Kong Cinema.
In celebration of his 110th birthday anniversary, Chung Ying Theatre Company produces Action! Mr. Lai! as a tribute to this colossus in the history of Chinese film-making.
