城市風光 City Sights

「城市不會泄露自己的過去,只會把它像手紋一樣藏起來,它被寫在街巷的角落、窗格的護欄、樓梯的扶手、避雷的天線和旗桿上,每一道印記都是抓撓、鋸銼、刻鑿、猛擊留下的痕跡。」卡爾維諾在《看不見的城市》中如此寫道。今個學期,Filmatic 載譽歸來,不只會一如以往繼續搞放映會,更會以「城市風光」作主題,大幅革新,專注探討城市與電影,追溯光影餘緒,解讀香港及外國導演鏡頭下的難忘電影場景。

“The city, however, does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightning rods, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indentations, scrolls.” Invisible Cities - Italo CalvinoFilmatic is back for another semester! Moving beyond film screenings, we are going to revamp our activities under the theme of ‘City Sights’- to explore the relationship between cities and films, and decode the movie sets of Hong Kong that appear in both local and foreign movies!

#九月 September|內外都市 City Inside Out


Hong Kong always appears in Hollywood films as a hybrid of modern metropolis and traditional fishing village, or the shady neighbourhood of the old Kowloon Walled City frequented by gangsters.  But what about local Hongkongers? How do they capture their own city in its essence? We will compare Hong Kong films and Hollywood blockbusters, and invite the local guru in location scouting, to explore how Hong Kong is re-constructed in films.
