Filmmaker Mr Ray Yeung delivers inaugural Media, Culture and Creative Cities Speaker Series seminar
We were delighted to welcome filmmaker Ray Yeung to be the distinguished speaker in our inaugural Media, Culture and Creative Cities Speaker Series seminar.
Ray shared his experiences of writing and directing the award-winning movie ‘Suk Suk’, which tells the heartfelt story of the lives of older gay men in Hong Kong. He discussed the process of doing research for the film, the challenges of getting people to open up about intimate aspects of their lives, and the relationship between cinema and sociology.
The MCCC Speaker Series consists of high-level seminars where we invite leading industry figures and academic speakers to HKU to share their insights into the role that media, culture and creativity plays in shaping society.
Stay tuned for details of more talks in the future!
