Look Back at Memories

Look Back at Memories

Hong Kong cinema was fond of remembering. Early in the post-war years, filmmakers who moved south readily shared with the audience their yearnings for the good old days on the Mainland. By the 1980s, our collective memories became more complicated, recalling the simpler days of the 1950s and 60s while also channeling the remembrances towards massaging fears for the future.

The Hong Kong Film Archive launched the program "Care for Our Community" two years ago as a response to the biennial Hong Kong Literature Festival presented by the Hong Kong Public Libraries. "Look Back at Memories" is a continuation of that effort. The Literature Festival's theme this year is "Footprints along the Way - A Tribute to Hong Kong Literature" and our program is a celebration of how we remember through films. It traces the footsteps of Hong Kong's cinematic memories in the 1980s and 90s, taking glimpses at our changing relationships with our community, the films themselves becoming fodder of our fond memories.
