Jointly presented by Hong Kong Arts Centre and Hong Kong film director Evans Chan, “Alternative Histories: The Cinema of Evans Chan” is a nine-film retrospective of Evans Chan’s cinema.
Evans Chan is an important figure in Hong Kong independent cinema. His overlapping identities, as a filmmaker and a scholar that have been influenced by both the Hong Kong Chinese and New York diaspora, have ignited him a quest for cultural identity at a critical moment in history. Chan has presented, in both fiction and documentary features over two decades, an alternative exploration of key moments in Hong Kong and the global Chinese history. A highlight of the screening is the world premiere, Two or Three Things about Kang Youwei – a classic costume-drama known to have escalated the Cultural Revolution.
Muuute was appointed by Hong Kong Arts Centre to develop the identity for this special screening programme. Traditional Chinese frames are multiplied by a modern twist to present the exceptional cultural intelligence in Evans Chan’s cinema.
