In this semester, we are looking for fellow movie lovers at EdUHK, who enjoy viewing and analyzing films, and would like to help this platform grow. We will kick off this semester’s programme on 19th October (Thurs) with Fruit Chan’s The Midnight After. In November, we will screen “The 1997 Trilogy “(1997 refers to the year of Hong Kong’s handover to the People’s Republic of China) every other week.
