A look at the use of music in Hong Kong films

  • Friday January 18, 2019

In honour of the 47th Hong Kong French Film Festival’s special ‘Retrospective’ programme dedicated to film composers, we are happy to host a talk combining cinema and music. In this talk, we will take a look at the use of music in Hong Kong cinema and enjoy excerpts selected by the speaker, Arnaud Lanuque.

A well-known figure in the local French community, Arnaud Lanuque has been researching and writing about Hong Kong cinema for over 15 years. A consulate employee by day, he turns into a film historian in his free time. A true enthusiast, he has interviewed dozens of major directors and written for cinema magazines and websites. In 2017, he published a book on Hong Kong police and gangster films: Police vs Syndicats du crime – Les polars et films de triades dans le cinéma de Hong Kong (as of today, the book is only available in French).
