Summary
Does Hong Kong have a significant tradition in documentary filmmaking? Until recently, many film scholars believed not. Yet, when Ian Aitken and Michael Ingham challenged this assumption, they discovered a rich cinematic tradition, dating back to the 1890s.0Under-researched and often forgotten, documentary film-making in Hong Kong includes a thriving independent documentary film movement, a large archive of documentaries made by the colonial film units, and a number of classic British Official Films. Case studies from all three categories are examined in this book, including 3The battle of Shanghai4, 3The sea and the sky4, 3Rising sun4 and 3The Hong Kong case4. In-depth discussion and analysis of more recent Hong Kong independent documentaries focuses on works such as Cheung King-wai's 3KJ: A life in Music4 and films by Tammy Cheung and Evans Chan.0With a particular focus on how these films address the historico-political dimension of their time, this book introduces students and scholars to this fascinating and largely unexplored cinematic tradition.0
