Love & Neon: The Cinema of Wong Kar Wai

Festivals and Celebrations

16 Oct 2021 to 23 Oct 2021 Once Only Event

The cinema of Wong Kar Wai is immersive and intoxicating. Across eleven feature films with his regular collaborators William Chang Suk-ping and Aussie cinematographer Christopher Doyle, the unique filmmaker has crafted a bold cinematic universe that is instantly recognisable, and often imitated.

Presented in this special showcase, Wong Kar Wai’s films evoke the thrumming energy of Hong Kong’s streetscapes, and invite us to share his characters’ introspective moments of late-night stillness. By turns romantic, rapturous and poetic, Wong evokes his city’s sumptuous past, the immediacy of its present, and the dizzying possibilities of its future.

Fans can experience his films anew on the big screen, and for newcomers, an invitation to slip into the paradoxical world of Wong Kar Wai, one that is at once elusive, nostalgic, romantic and eternally timeless.
