"Lai Buk-hoi & Lai Man-wai: Trailblazers of Hong Kong Cinema" Exhibition

The Lai Brothers Buk-hoi and Man-wai were pioneers contributing immensely to the establishment of the early Hong Kong and Chinese film industries. They had invested generously in building the first Chinese-owned cinema and training specialists, and were by profession, film directors, cinematographers and actors in the early Hong Kong film industry.

To commemorate the Lai Brothersˇ¦achievements, an exhibition ˇ§Lai Buk-hoi & Lai Man-wai: Trailblazers of Hong Kong Cinemaˇ¨ is held at the lobby of the Hong Kong Film Archive (HKFA) from now until May 28.

In celebration of the 100 years of Chinese cinema, and the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Lai Buk-hoiˇ¦s death, the Archive has initiated new research on historical facts related to the early period of Hong Kong cinema.

The exhibition, an attempt to stimulate thoughts on cinematic heritage and to encourage more people to take up in-depth historical research, includes Lai Brothers and other pioneersˇ¦ contribution to early Hong Kong Cinema and some images of archival documents.

The exhibition opens daily from 10am to 8pm except Thursdays. For enquiries, call 2739 2139 or visit http://www.filmarchive.gov.hk .

Two other exhibitions including the ˇ§@locationˇ¨ at the Exhibition Hall of HKFA and ˇ§The Glorious Modernity of Kong Ngeeˇ¨ at the first floor are on display from now until June. Admission is free.
