 A Chinese Ghost Story 1987

A Chinese Ghost Story (1987) is based on a romantic story in Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio, between the maiden ghost Nie Xiaoqian (cast by Joey Wang) and the scholar Ning Cai-chen (cast by Leslie Cheung). The use of innovative special effects and filming techniques to animate romance, horror, martial arts and comedy ushered in a glorious new era of storytelling for horror films.

Mr Poon Hang-sang (Poon Sir), who has won the Hong Kong Film Award for Best Cinematography and the cinematographer of A Chinese Ghost Story (1987), will be sharing his experience in the post-screening talk. Dr Ng Chun-hung (Leung Foon) and Sam Ho will also discuss this 1980s classic from the perspectives of adapting literary masterpieces, cinematic artistry as well as visual and musical aesthetics.

All's Well, End's Well 1992 

What comes to your mind when you think of classic Hong Kong Chinese New Year comedy film in the 1990s?

All's Well, End's Well (1992) is about the romantic misadventures of three brothers casted by Raymond Wong, Leslie Cheung and Stephen Chow. The acting in this film was funny and heart-warming, while the nonsensical dialogues surpassed time and never grew old, showing the daily lives and culture of Hong Kong.

For the post-screening talk, we are honoured to have Dr Ng Chun-hung (Leung Foon) and Sam Ho to be our hosts. We have also invited Sheila Chin (Lanchi) to share with us her interesting experience about shooting this film!
