I·CARE Theatre 2018-19 - When They Met in the Fall (Poster)

Autumn is……
the season when trees shed their leaves,
and perhaps
the moment when true love begins.

The I·CARE Theatre, co-organised by the I·CARE Centre for Whole-person Development and The Office of the Arts Administrator, will be themed “When They Met in the Fall” in November of 2018. It is going to bring to the CUHKers two romantic classics of different generations, namely An Autumn’s Tale (of the 1980s) and Late Autumn (of the millennials).

Two love stories in the United States which depict two young couples’ affinity during autumn: Will the delicate affection of the couples transform into autumn foliage and vanish into the autumn breeze?

I·CARE Theatre 2018-19 - The Pristine Craze (Poster)

In the 1st night, there comes the current “Fresh Wave” winning pieces……
In the 2nd night, the prominent director’s classic “New Wave” film revives.

The I·CARE Theatre, co-organised by the I·CARE Centre for Whole-person Development and The Office of the Arts Administrator, will be themed “The Pristine Craze” in October of 2018. It is going to screen The Secret (Restored Version) under the “New Wave” category, as well as Bright Spring Days, The Bridge, and The Umbrella under the “Fresh Wave” category. The three “Fresh Wave” films are the winning pieces of the “12th Fresh Wave International Short Film Festival”. Through the screening, audiences are able to have a taste of the perspectives and thoughts of the youth of different decades through their avant-garde productions.

The “New Wave” marks an important chapter of the Hong Kong cinema history and is a pivotal movement brought about to the local film industry by young filmmakers during the late 1970s and early 1980s. During that period, many of the young talents of the industry returned to Hong Kong after having finished their education abroad. With their innovative techniques in filmmaking, these directors set their productions apart from those of the mainstream and paved the way for a major breakthrough in Hong Kong cinema. The “New Wave” has opened up a medium for exploration of issues involving current affairs, humanities and ethics, and it has re-oriented the locally-made films in the ensuing decades. Many of the then fledgling directors and producers emerged from the period, including Tsui Hark, Ann Hui and Patrick Tam, have now become monumental figures of the local film industry.

The “Fresh Wave” is a newly emerged platform which aims to promote production of local filmmaking and to identify and nurture young talents in the film industry. The “Fresh Wave Short Film Festival” has been launched annually since 2005, and it was subsequently evolved into an international short film festival in 2010 to further extend the opportunity for local young filmmakers to showcase their talents at a global scale. The three films to be screened by the I·CARE Theatre have been awarded different honours in this festival, and their directors are all alumni of CUHK School of Journalism and Communication.
