獨立電影《十年》被譽為香港的「超現實警世預言書」,亦有人主張其中的某些故事其實不是預言,而是對現時、現實的回應。電影中五部短片以迴異的電影語言和視覺風格大膽回應政治和衝突,言簡意駭,引起各式詮釋。流行文化與人文學研究中心有幸邀請到其中幾位導演和編劇與專研香港電影文化的香港大學比較文學系講師羅玉華博士對談,深入分享創作緣由和心得。如你對《十年》、電影、故事書寫、藝術、本土文化有興趣, 此座談會都會是難得的經驗。

嘉賓:

《浮瓜》導演郭瑧

《冬蟬》導演、編劇黃飛鵬

《本地蛋》導演、編劇伍嘉良

香港大學比較文學系講師羅玉華

The independent film Ten Years” has been praised by some as a surrealist prophetic admonition” to Hong Kong, and many have seen it as a response to the citys current conflicts and unique postcolonial identity. Using a range of cinematic techniques and visual styles, the five short sequences boldly address the political conflicts leaving much room for multiple interpretations. The Centre for Popular Culture in the Humanities is pleased to present some of the film’s directors and screenwriters in conversation with Dr. Fiona Law, a scholar specialising in Hong Kong film culture.

The seminar would be conducted in Cantonese, with simultaneous interpretation in English

 

Guest list:

KWOK Zune, Director of “Extras”

WONG Fei-Pang, Director and Screenwriter of “Season of the End”

NG Ka-Leung, Director and Screenwriter of “Local Egg”

Dressing between East and West: Inter-textuality of Fashion and Literature

東西更衣記 — 時裝與文學的文本互涉

Date: 12 Oct 2015

Time: 10:30 – 12:30

Venue: D1-LP-06

 

In the beginning of the 20th century, Paul Poiret designed a high-waisted rope dress inspired by Eastern aura and his wife’s slim figure,  the image of natural bodies re-entered the public scene and women abandoned their corsets gradually.  Since then masculine and feminine representations has been wrestling  in female fashion, signalling the parallel changes of women’s style and rights. In this talk, fashion history and Eileen Chang’s Note on Dressing was being studied together in order to investigate the gender revolution brought by fashion and literature in both the east and west.

自保羅‧波烈在上世紀初以以其妻子纖細的體型與東方情調為藍本,推出一種高腰長袍、帶垂掛感的裙子,自然的身體形象重回大眾視野內,女人逐漸丟棄緊身胸衣。此後雌雄形象在女性時裝裡互相角力,服飾和女權亦跟著時代轉變。講座將對讀西方服裝史與張愛玲的《更衣記》,看看中西時裝和文學帶來的現代性別變革啟示。
