Stanley Kwan's Center Stage

Mette Hjort

Center Stage is widely recognized as a classic of the New Hong Kong cinema. The film's status has until now been attributed to the fascinating way in which Kwan combines a reconstruction of Ruan Lingyu's tragic life as a Chinese film star with sequences documenting the making of his film.

Wong Kar-wai's Happy Together

Jeremy Tambling

This book shows two Chinese gay men in Buenos Aires and reflects on Hong Kong's past and future by probing masculinity, aggression, identity, and homosexuality. It also gives a reading of Latin America, perhaps as an allegory of Hong Kong as another post-colonial society.

Yuen Woo Ping's WING CHUN

Sasha Vojkovic

This book explores Wing Chun's narrative representation of femininity and the martial arts genre, its history, traditions and cultural influences. While studio-made Hong Kong genre cinema has stressed action over narrative, Wing Chun offers a more egalitarian gender imaginary rooted in Daoist and Buddhist thought. The book provides new insights on the non-linear cinematic storytelling of the film.
