M+ Screenings: The Film Life of Ann Hui addresses the work of the acclaimed director, who has been quietly contributing to Hong Kong cinema for four decades. Ann Hui is known for her exploration of diverse subjects, her broad stylistic range, and the ease with which she moves between genre films and literary adaptations while keeping a finger steadily on the pulse of society. The Hong Kong film industry has seen many changes over the years, but Hui has consistently maintained her creative autonomy, and has been recognised six times as Best Director at the Hong Kong Film Awards. This programme offers a new perspective on her celebrated work, and features nine post-screening talks by her collaborators and by film critics.

In addition to the screenings, there is also a free seminar – Face to Face with Ann Hui on 9 December (Sunday), please register in advance.

8–9 December (Saturday–Sunday), 14–16 December 2018 (Friday–Sunday)
