29th SGIFF: Masterclass | Stanley Kwan

A key figure of the Hong Kong New Wave, Stanley Kwan is a leading light of Hong Kong cinema. His directorial debut, Women, along with later works such as Rouge and Actress, are celebrated by critics and cinephiles alike. Kwan’s complex storytelling explores contemporary sentiments of identity and history with nuanced depictions of sexuality. In this masterclass, we find out what keeps Kwan going in his artistic pursuits, how he continues to reinvent his directing style and how he imparts knowledge to the younger generation.

Stanley Kwan began his career at TVB. Rouge (1987), his third film, won him a substantial international audience. After that, Actress (1991) won the Best Actress prize at the Berlin International Film Festival for Maggie Cheung, and Hold You Tight (1997) won both the Alfred Bauer Prize for innovation and the Teddy Award for best LGBT feature, again in Berlin. In 2001, he was awarded Best Director at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival and Awards for Lanyu. Directing as well as producing, he is now one of the most prominent players within the Hong Kong film industry.
