Introduction

Celebrating UNESCO's "World Day for Audiovisual Heritage"

In 2005, in a global effort to promote awareness of the importance of preserving audiovisual documents from the past, the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated 27 October of every year as the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. It serves as a reminder of the integral role audiovisual documents play in recording local and regional cultures throughout the world.

In celebration of this day, the Hong Kong Film Archive is presenting Stanley Kwan's Center Stage (1992), a 2K digital copy scanned from the inter-negative and sound negative loaned from Fortune Star Media Limited. About half an hour longer than the originally released version, this 155-minute director's cut will allow audiences to savour this internationally renowned work that won Maggie Cheung the first Silver Bear award for a Hong Kong actress, in all its nostalgic splendor and historic charm.
