《香港香港.蒼生》(1983) 導演:劉國昌
Faces and Places: The Diviner (Directed by Lawrence Ah Mon)


Date: 5 March 2014 (Wednesday)
Descriptions: 住在油麻地廟街一帶舊樓的一群低下層人各自漂浮,也各有生活與情感的波折。他們互相猜疑,苟且偷生,但甘國衛對生命的關懷,彷彿在黑暗中燃點了微弱的火光,令生命還有點希望。劉國昌以經濟而感性的筆觸刻劃蒼生群像滿有功力,針對殘酷的現實指點嘆息,可謂怨而不傷,怒而不狂。本片獲紐約電影電視節「金獎」。

6. 21 March 2013: A Day at CUHK in the 21st Century - Call for Submissions

The Power of Words cordially invites you to record what you see, hear, think, and sense on 21 March 2013. Allow your feelings, reflections, thoughts, and perspectives become part of CUHK's history.


Prior to the Second Sino-Japanese War, Mao Dun (茅盾), a renowned Chinese writer, initiated a massive writing event called "A Day in China". Three decades ago, a group of passionate CUHK students compiled "A Day at CUHK" to encourage members of CUHK to reflect on their lives and their generation. We may have different campus experiences, but what we share will become part of the history of CUHK. Time has gone by and CUHK's 50th Anniversary is approaching. It is time again for us to contribute once again to CUHK's history.


We welcome members of CUHK (including undergraduate and postgraduate students, exchange students, teachers, staff, alumni, retired staff, visiting scholars, their respective family members, and non-CUHK employees on campus) to participate in this meaningful and memorable event. We accept poems and prose (in Chinese or English and in ancient or modern genres), and there is no word limit. Submitted entries will be posted on the Internet, and selected work will be published as a collection.


Submission:


Entries (saved as Word documents) can be submitted by email to PowerOfWords@cuhk.edu.hk or by post: Hong Kong Literature Research Centre, Department of Chinese Language and Literature, Fung King Hey Building, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, New Territories, Shatin.

The content does not have to be directly related to the CUHK campus. This is not a competition. There will be no rankings, trophies, or prizes awarded.


The deadline for submission is 30 June 2013. (Entries will begin to be posted onto the Internet in April.)


The advisors for "A Day at CUHK" in the 21st Century are Professor Weiluan Lu (Xiao Si) and Professor Leo Ou-fan Lee.
