Sounds on Screen: Hong Kong New Wave

Hong Kong, 22.07.20

Kicking back against the established formula of mainstream Hong Kong cinema - mostly martial arts action movies - filmmakers like Tsui Hark and Patrick Tam kick started Hong Kong's New Wave in the late 1970s, creating work influenced by western cinema. The movement's "second wave" saw director Wong Kar-wai rise to prominence. His films feature characters grappling with ageless themes of love and longing amongst the ultra modern, neon-lit aesthetics of Hong Kong's bustling urban sprawl.

Mixed by Florence Scott - Anderton
