Screenings & Events

Hong Kong Cinema

This year features greater international scope than ever before with HK filmmakers telling mainland stories or setting their work in countries such as Malaysia and Thailand. The program runs the genre gamut with enough action, romance, drama and thrills to satisfy all viewers. We're also pleased to present an exciting two-film retrospective in honor of the incredible talents of late martial arts choreographer/writer/director Lau Kar-leung (aka Liu Chia-liang).
