* Lecture Series on Chinese Dance: 'The Beauty of Chinese Dance' ($50)   Internet Booking
Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, a lecture series titled "The Beauty of Chinese Dance" on the aesthetics and character of folk dance across Chinese cultures will be held in May and June. Hosted by experienced Chinese dance artist Chung Ching, this series aims to extend the distinctive styles and characteristics of Chinese folk dance to explore the aesthetics and character of folk dance across Chinese cultures. Through a progressive study of hand, foot and body movements and the associated emotions, the body language and dance idioms of different ethnic groups are compared and analysed in terms of four areas, namely the movements and configurations of the hands, the pace of ascent of the feet, the turning and dynamic points of the body, and the emotions from within.

* "Ways of the Underworld - Hong Kong Gangster Film as a Genre" ($40)   Internet Booking
From John Chiang and Ti Lung's kindred spirits in "The Duel" (1971), the intense loyalty of gangland brothers in "A Better Tomorrow" (1986), to the undercover cop with a moral dilemma in "Infernal Affairs" (2002), the spirit of brotherhood has been portrayed vividly in Hong Kong gangster films. These gangster movies have not only brought numerous memorable characters to the screen, such as Ma Wing-jing, Big Brother Cheng, Brother Mark, but have also created sub-genres focusing on young thugs, undercover cops and police informers. As a contribution programme to the 38th Hong Kong International Film Festival, the retrospective will showcase numerous gangster films from different eras, including "The System" (1979), "Absolute Monarch (1980), "Gangs" (1988), "On the Edge" (2006), "The Stool Pigeon" (2010), as well as well-known crime films from other countries including "The Yakuza Papers" (1973) and "Sonatine" (1993) for comparison. There will be also post-screening talks to complement the screenings.
