Filmatic – Weekly Movie Salons curated by students
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 Calvino

Filmatic is back for another semester! Moving beyond film screenings, we are going to revolutionise 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

荷里活眼中的香港,繁華城市景觀與漁村歷史結合,鏡頭一轉,屢屢走進龍蛇混雜的翻版九龍城寨。外國人看香港,本地人看香港又怎樣拿捏?如何拍出最地道真實的電影?我們將會對讀香港電影和荷里活大片,又找來「取景達人」與同學分享,探討電影空間裏所呈現的香港。

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.

14/9 《重慶森林》 Chungking Express (1994)
21/9 《悍戰太平洋》 Pacific Rim (2013)
「荷里活中的香港風貌」取景達人朱鎮安分享*
  “Hong Kong in the Lens of Hollywood” by Location Scout, Chu Chen On*
  *Details to be announced

#十月 October|罪惡之城 City of Sin

每個城市都有自己的禁忌話題,最荒謬的社會現實往往啟發電影創作。只有看過美麗與醜惡兩面,才能接近城市的真實本體。十月,我們從虛構及真實罪案的電影中,一起窺看城市的陰暗面。

There are taboos in each city, where the utmost absurdity often inspires cinematic works. We can only truly know a city after being acquainted with both its beauty and its darkness. Let’s discover the dark side of the city through real and fictional crime stories.

12/10 《維多利亞一號》 Dream Home (2010)*
26/10 《白日焰火》 Black Coal, Thin Ice (2014)
2/11 《踏血尋梅》 Port of Call (2015) *
* Persons Aged 18 or Above Only

#十一月 November|偉大城市的誕生與衰亡 The Rise and Fall of a Great City

城市、社區和街道息息相關,由上而下的規劃和重建成為新聞頭條,同一時間,社區自發的空間規劃和倡議如雨後春筍。「空間」是與城市最關連的詞語,透過電影,或許我們能夠明白自己的城市,到底步向復蘇或是衰亡?

A city is shaped by its planning, communities, and st
reets. While top-down urban planning and renovation plans make the headlines, voluntary communal discussions about spatial politics are also garnering increasing attention. ‘Space’ is the most closely related element to the vibe of a city. Through films, let’s figure out whether our city is heading to its rise or fall.
