"This book pushes the boundaries of existing studies on Hong Kong cinema studies. Yue provides us with innovative ways of reading intimacy in the diaspora: as nostalgia for the familiar or idealised; as cultural memories that make up diasporic archives; as modes of transformation of kinship Structures; as affects produced through new media technologies. The book concludes with a self-reflexive exploration of teaching Song in Australia. By situating the film under the rubric of critical multiculturalism, Yue demonstrates how the teaching of postcolonial cinema can be sustained as a political pedagogy that resists the pluralist demands of a neoliberal curriculum. This is a carefully researched, rigorously analytical and intellectually profound study that will make its mark in the fields of diaspora, transcultural communication and cinema studies."---Jacqueline Lo, Australian National University --
The resolutely independent filmmaker Ann On-wah Hui continues to inspire critical acclaim for her sensitive portrayals of numerous Hong Kong tragedies and marginalized populations. In a pioneering career spanning three decades, Hui has been director, producer, writer and actress for more than 30 films. --
In this work, Audrey Yue analyses a 1990 film considered by many to be one of Hui's most haunting and poignant works, Song of the Exile. The semi-autobiographical film depicts a daughter's coming to terms with her mother's Japanese identity. Themes of cross-cultural alienation, divided loyalties and generational reconciliation resonate strongly amid the migration and displacement pressures surrounding Hong Kong in the early 1990s. Even now, more than a decade after the 1997 Handover, the film is a perennial favourite among returning Hong Kong emigrants and international cinema students. --
This book examines how Hui challenges the myth of the original home as singular, familial and romantic, and constructs the second home as a new space for Hong Kong modernity. Yue also discusses the teaching of the film in the diaspora, demonstrating its potential as an affective and performative text of transcultural literacy and diasporic negotiations in the cross-cultural classroom. --Book Jacket.

Hong Kong : culture and the politics of disappearance / Ackbar Abbas
Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1997.
Call No: 408.1(512.317) ABB Author: Abbas, M. A. (M. Ackbar) Place: Minneapolis Publisher: University of Minnesota Press PubDate: 1997 PhysDes: vii, 155 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Series: Public worlds ; v. 2 Subject: HONG KONG; NATIONAL CULTURE AND THE CINEMA. HONG KONG; NATIONAL IDENTITY AND THE CINEMA. HONG KONG; ORIENTAL ACTION FILMS; WONG KAR-WAI; KWAN, STANLEY; TSUI, HARK; HUI, ANN Summary: The Culture of Hong Kong encompasses Jackie Chan and John Woo, British colonial architecture and postmodern skyscrapers. Ironically, it was not until they were faced with the imposition of Mainland power - with the signing of the Sino-British Joint Agreement in 1984 - that the denizens of the colony began the search for a Hong Kong identity. According to Abbas, Hong Kong's peculiar lack of identity is due to its status as "not so much a place as a space of transit," whose residents think of themselves as transients and migrants on their way from China to somewhere else. In this intriguing and provocative exploration of its cinema, architecture, photography, and literature, Ackbar Abbas considers what Hong Kong, with its unique relations to decolonization and disappearance, can teach us about the future of both the colonial city and the global city Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 147-150) and index ISBN: 0816629242 (hard : alk. paper); 0816629250 (pbk. : alk. paper) LON: 12802637 12802637 ID2: 291 More info
