《金門銀光夢》

香港 | 2013 | 93分鐘 | 中英語對白,中英文字幕

這部記錄片追蹤太平洋戰爭爆發前后在美國和香港從事電影制作的女影人伍錦霞(1914-70)的事跡。她是出生於三藩市的華僑第三代,早在1935年就在美國監制粵語片,並在香港和美國兩地制編導了十部粵語片,大多富於女性主義色彩。伍錦霞一生特立獨行、一身男裝打扮,人皆稱為「霞哥」,報界則譽之為「華南首位女導演」。片中的兩條敍事複線,一條跟隨二十年代就揚名國際的華裔女星黃柳霜(1905-61),另一條則審視40年代好萊塢僅有的女導演桃樂西·阿玆納(1897-1979),把她們與錦霞的事跡作出對比,嘗試用跨文化的目光探尋女性電影人在男性操控的電影工業中的奮斗與起落。
