MOOC: Melodramas of Migration: Mabel Cheung Yuen Ting’s An Autumn’s Tale

Women directors may be in the minority in the Hong Kong film industry; however, they contribute enormously to the artistic quality and popular appeal of the territory’s cinema globally.  In the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), Hong Kong Cinema Through a Global Lens, Dr. Stacilee Ford looks at Mabel Cheung’s An Autumn’s Tale from a feminist perspective.  Drawing on her monograph published by Hong Kong University Press, Dr. Ford examines the “intersectional” nature of gender, race, and immigration in this classic film starring Cherie Chung and Chow Yun-fat.
