To Be Continued 尚未完場

Date: Saturday, 13 May 2023
Time: 15:00 – 17:00 PDT
Venue: Labatt Hall, Harbour Centre Room 1700, SFU Vancouver (555 West Hastings Street)

What began as a conservation campaign to save the iconic State Theatre 皇都戲院 in Hong Kong morphed into five years of research and interviews with those who witnessed Harry Odell, Hong Kong’s first impresario, in action. The result: a film that is as much a study of one indomitable pioneer as it is a soul-searching journey of what defines Hong Kong.

The screening will be followed by a virtual conversation with directors Dora Choi and Haider Kikabhoy to be hosted by Dr. Helen Leung (SFU) and Dr. Helena Wu (UBC).

The event is free and open to all.
Limited seats available. Registration required.

This screening+conversation is co-organized by the Institute for Transpacific Cultural Research, Simon Fraser University and the UBC Hong Kong Studies Initiative, University of British Columbia.
