HIFF – Love & Anarchy and Asian Film Awards Academy offer a wonderful opportunity for a deepdive to the films of a renowned Hong Kong director, Stanley Kwan: In his masterclass, Kwan will discuss his body of work and his working methods, the audience will also have the opportunity to participate by asking questions. This is an ultimate must for every lover of Asian cinema! The masterclass is moderated by Katri Tenhola, programmer of the Finnish Audiovisual institute.

Stanley Kwan (b. 1957) began his career in the golden age of Hong Kong cinema in the 1980’s among other internationally acclaimed directors, such as Wong Kar-Wai and Sammo Hung. He specializes in dramas that focus on women, their feelings and social status in a changing society. Additionally, he has also explored sexuality and homophobia in his films. Love & Anarchy’s Stanley Kwan retrospective showcases three of Kwan’s films: Rouge (1987), Center Stage (1992) and Lan Yu (2001).
