GDCV1007 Hong Kong Cinema and Hong Kong Culture (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
Through watching and discussions of Hong Kong films selected by virtue of their relevance to three general aspects of Hong Kong culture (identity, cityscape, social structure), the cultural dialectics of Hong Kong will be explored. The emphases will be the interplays of form and content, and the mutual influence of film as a medium of expression and film as a cultural product. Students will see how Hong Kong Cinema reflects Hong Kong culture and how local culture and production environments at different times affect the messages, forms, and movements of Hong Kong Cinema. Comparisons to films from the West and other Asian countries may be drawn to position Hong Kong in the World.
