Haunting Images: Live Cinema by Lim Giong
Why We Recommend it
Renowned Taiwanese musician and film score composer Lim Giong performs two live cinema shows featuring short films of Hong Kong in the early 1950s.
In this collaborative live cinema event, Lim Giong offers a fresh look on water and harbour, light and shadow, movement and ritual in both Hong Kong and Taiwan’s urban environments of private and collective memory.
The performance, which aims to rethink the relationship between sound and image, features two videos by Dutch photographer, videographer and amateur filmmaker Michael Rogge (b. 1929); namely Rain (1952) and Sunrise (1953). Also featured in the performance is Brooklyn-based artist Simon Liu’s 16mm dual projection work Harbour City (2016).
This event is organised as a pre-event to the annual Hong Kong Asian Film Festival (HKAFF), which will kick off on 6 November.
