Hong Kong movies once dominated the Asian movie market with awesome action films that told poignant stories and employed some of the most exciting stunts and creative cinematographic work ever seen on film. Though Hong Kong cinema's heyday is arguably behind us, more recent Hong Kong movies continue to resonate with us, because they are inspired by our home and common experiences, desires, anxieties.
The city’s film industry still boasts a wealth of local talent from familiar faces to rising stars, who have contributed to making a spectacular lineup of recent movies for us Hongkongers to enjoy as they entertain and explore deep-rooted social issues in our society.
