As this year marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover from Britain to China, China Cultural Centre (Sydney) and Network of International Culturalink Entities will join forces to present a specially commissioned event titled “Hong Kong Movie Week”. A series of award-winning Hong Kong Films representing Hong Kong cinema during the post-war decades will be on screen, together with an insightful lecture to be delivered by an established senior Movie Critic Mr. Ho See Wing (Sampson) from Hong Kong that seeks to provide greater understanding into the world of films from a professional perspective.
About the Movie:
Shanghai Blues, like It was a Cold Winter Night (1955), is set during and after WWII, at a Chinese city re-imagined in a Hong Kong studio.

A man and a woman meet in 1937 under a bridge during an air raid and vow to reunite after victory. Ten years later, they meet again indeed, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a reunion…
