In Dialogue with Ann Hui and Margaret Ng: As Time Goes By (Ann Hui, 1997)
The MALCS Programme of the Department of Comparative Literature is proud to present an event on 17 Nov 2017 (Friday) for a film screening and panel discussion with director Ann Hui (許鞍華) and Dr Margaret Ng (吳靄儀). The panel discussion is about the hour-long documentary by Ann Hui in 1997, As Time Goes By (《去日苦多》). In the documentary, the director invites her university friends to reminisce about their college days and, in the process, engage in a discussion about education and local history in the colonial days. When 1997 marks the year of the Handover of sovereignty of Hong Kong, the film inevitably examines Hong Kong people’s sense of identity and their vision for the years ahead into the new future under China. Twenty years have passed since 1997, it is an opportune time to explore the differences between the “new future” they envisioned two decades ago and the impending reality that Hong Kong people are experiencing in the recent years.
