Main Description
Described as the "lost genre", the tradition of documentary film making in Hong Kong is far less known than its martial arts films. However documentary film has always existed in Hong Kong and often represents its troubled relationship to itself, China and the west. Including the period of colonial film-making, the high points of television documentary and the tradition of independent documentary film-making, this book presents a comprehensive study of this lost genre. It explores the role of public-service television (including representations of the massacre at Tiananmen Square) and presents critical analysis of key films.
