Youre all invited to the opening of the Kung Fu, Ganster etc. exhibit presented at the Cinémathèque québécoise with the presence of Gordon Liu
The Cinémathèque québécoise welcomes a major summer exhibition of 50 posters that reflect the tremendous vitality of Hong Kong genre cinema (Ringo Lam, John Woo, Hark Tsui, Wong Kar-Wai). Johnnie Tos work is an important part of this show, with 11 posters from his films. Two documentaries by the French filmmaker Yves Montmayeur will be shown continuously in the exhibition space: Milkyway : la ciné factory de Johnnie To (2005) and Hong Kong film noir (2007). The posters come from the personal collection of Colin Geddes, a Toronto International Film Festival programmer and independent distributor of genre films.
