MASTERCLASS WITH FRUIT CHAN
3 DEC 2016, SAT / 4.30PM / 60MIN
IMPORTANT TICKETING INFORMATION BELOW
Fruit Chan has managed to make a name for himself, writing and directing features that fare well on both independent and mainstream circuits. Famous for employing amateur actors and working with low budgets, Chan’s success has placed him amongst the top in the independent Second Wave movement in Hong Kong cinema, during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Heavily influenced by Japanese films from the 1960s, Fruit Chan’s films are a reflection on the reality of life in Hong Kong, touching on pivotal moments in the country’s history and the societal changes that come with it. Uncover the filmmaker’s own history, how he has cemented his style through his bold and imaginative works, and his impressions of the current filmmaking scene in Hong Kong and China.
Fruit Chan, born in 1959 in Guangdong, China, is an independent producer, scriptwriter and director. He started his film career in 1982 after a stint at the Hong Kong Film Culture Centre by assisting other more renowned directors. His first feature, the romantic ghost story Finale In Blood was released in 1993. The film did not achieve mainstream success, though critics lauded it. His second film, Made In Hong Kong, the first installment from his 1997 trilogy, won the Best Picture Award at the 1998 Hong Kong Film Awards along with 13 other wins and six other nominations. The trilogy included 1998’s The Longest Summer and 1999’s Little Cheung. His second series, The Prostitution Trilogy, began with Durian Durian, which won Best Picture at the 38th Golden Horse Awards, along with Best Film and Best New Performer at the 20th Hong Kong Film Awards in 2001. Chan’s most recent film, Kill Time, grossed CN¥13.3 million in China during its release this year.
