  • 100 years of Hong Kong cinema

    20-Mar-2009

    Every great story involves a little mystery, and so it is with the story of Hong Kong cinema. Film-making is thought to have made its way to town as early as 1898, when the US-based Edison production house sent a camera crew through Asia, and returned home with footage of Hong Kong landmarks, including The Peak and Government House. There were also cinema houses in the Central district, where out-of-work actors were employed to supply live translations for foreign films.
