Hong Kong Film Archive shows films in memory of Lydia Sum

Hong Kong Film Archive (HKFA)'s retrospective "In Memory of Lydia Sum" to commemorate the comedienne's inspiring on-screen performances will continue at the HKFA until Sunday (March 16).

Films to be screened include Cantonese classic "Teddy Girls", comic adapted film "Master Cute and Tai Fan Shu", melodramas "Four Sisters", "First Love Forever", and her swansong "In-laws, Out-laws". Director Clifton Ko will meet the audience and share his recollection on Sum's performance before the screening of "In-laws, Out-laws" at 7.30pm on Sunday at the Cinema of the HKFA.

A small-scale exhibition on the first floor of the HKFA showing more of her stills and photographs will be staged from March 21 at the Exhibition Hall of the HKFA. Admission is free.

A film and television comedienne for more than 40 years, Lydia Sum brought joy to the lives of Hong Kong people and overseas Chinese communities with her trademark laughter. She appeared in more than 160 films, playing a wide variety of characters in vastly different movie genres. She was talented in many ways: acting, singing and dancing; but her best talent was to make people happy.

All films are in Cantonese. "Teddy Girls" and "In-laws, Out-laws" have Chinese and English subtitles. No marked seats for any of the screenings.

Tickets are available at all URBTIX outlets. As with other HKFA retrospective programmes, tickets are priced at HK$30, with half-price concession for senior citizens aged 60 or over, people with disabilities, full-time students and Comprehensive Social Security Assistance recipients. Reservations can be made by phone on 2734 9009.
