To commemorate the victory of the war of resistance against Japanese aggression, the Archive organises free screenings of films themed on the war every year on 3 September. For the previous year, we screened Hong Kong 1941 (1984), a film set during the Japanese occupation of the city. The focus continues to be on Hong Kong this year with The Raid, a 1991 film directed by Tsui Hark and Tony Ching Siu-tung that was adapted from a popular local comic book. Unlike other wartime films, The Raid takes a light-hearted approach in revisiting the war through action sequences and a comic style.
