Courses of Action

Goethe-Institut Hong Kong 14/F, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Hong Kong Arts Centre 2 Harbour Road, Wan Chai

Co-presented by Goethe-Institut Hong Kong and Para Site, “Course of Action” is the result of a long-term collaboration between the two institutions to support emerging curators.
The show is developed as an alternative archive interfacing Hong Kong and the Philippines, divided into three moments: a film co-production in 1955 between Manila and Hong Kong titled “Sanda Wong”, an adventure film about brotherhood, bandits, and treasures (possibly one of the earliest transnational partnerships in film in the region); an episode in the history of labor organising in Hong Kong in the 1960s that involved an exchange programme between local unions and the University of the Philippines; and the career of Cynthia Luster [Yukari Oshima], Japanese-born female action star who had an active career in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Philippines, and her first film produced in the Philippines in 1994, titled “Once Upon a Time in Manila”.
