EVENT – Film Makers & NGOs Unite To Reveal Hidden Side of HK

For Good: Film Project consists of five film makers who, with NGOs, make visible the hidden sides of Hong Kong.

An exciting première was held at the Asia Society Hong Kong Centre’s Miller Theatre in February. Film makers were present for a lively discussion of their personal styles and motivations, as well as how each film developed from idea to finished product. The discussion included the social issues raised in each film, why they matter, along with ways in which all of us can make a difference.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

After a sell-out run at the Fringe Club earlier this year, Shakespeare in the Port is happy to present A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The course of true love never did run smooth, as fairies and humans alike find out one midsummer’s night. With a pinch of magic, comedy and confusion unfold. Perhaps love is nothing but blind, irrational and impulsive, or perhaps not.

Shows: April 18th and 19th at 3pm
