A second Lawrence Lau interview and much more!
Happy May 1 to you -- especially if, like in Hong Kong, it's celebrated as Labour Day and thus a public holiday! For some reason, am feeling fairly awake early this morning. So rather than treat myself to a lie in, here's bringing you links to my contributions to the May 1 issue of bc magazine:-
i) Troubled Youth in the City of Sadness -- Interview with Besieged City's director, Lawrence Lau (AKA Lawrence Ah Mon) (On a sidenote: If anyone had told me a year ago, that I'd meet and talk to the director of Queen of Temple Street, Spacked Out, My Name is Fame, etc. thrice within a matter of months...! ;b);
ii) Harlequin on a Hike -- Chinese Opera meets Commedia dell' Arte;
iii) Stage Struck -- Indian playback singing superstar Sonu Niigaam;
iv) Utopia -- 40 Years On -- May '68 films and memories;
v) Macau Arts Festival Dining Guide -- Macau cultural eats;
vi) The Editor's Diary for the period covering May 1 to 14;
vii) Happy Funeral review and short interview with director Barbara Wong Chun Chun;
viii) This Darling Life (Angie Chen, director) review;
ix) Besieged City review; and, special to the internet (since we ran out of space in the hard copy version of the issue!),
x) a Love is Elsewhere review.
