Introduction
Restored Classic Confucius

Return of the Restored : Confucius

Confucius is an important film. It's a remarkable artifact from the Orphan Island period, an extraordinary production of the Chinese film industry during that time and a work of great significance in the oeuvre
of Fei Mu, one of the best directors in the history of Chinese film. The discovery and subsequent restoration of the long-lost Confucius filled an important void in Chinese cinema and will surely contribute to the
better understanding and appreciation of it in the future.

The Hong Kong Film Archive is very proud of the response to our debut presentation of Confucius last April. All of the scheduled screenings were quickly sold out and so were the three extra screenings we added
in response. It took us by total surprise.

Confucius is a film that demands study, not just from the perspectives of film history and aesthetics but also those of Chinese history, Chinese culture, art history, musicology and other disciplines.

We are therefore presenting the film again, once every month in August, September and October of 2009, together with two seminars to foster more dialogues on this notable part of our heritage.
