Interview Terence Yin: alive not dead artist
A familiar face in the cinema of the last decade but rather a low profile artist, Terrence Yin has a lot of interesting things to discuss about. In the interview below, Yin talks about his career, the rather disappointing entertainment industry in HK, which he parodied with other friends with the "Alive" act and subsequent mockumentary "Heavenly Kings", and Yin discusses www.alivenotdead.com, a portal for local artists that he has created.

Interview with Elvis Tsui
After an exile up North in Beijing for TV-series work, Elvis Tsui agreed to come back to HK to work on Nick Chin’s directorial debut, Magazine Gap Road.
We had the chance to send a few questions to Tsui via Chin and the film producer. Hoping for more developed answers, we still were grateful to get some answers to our questions on this HK extraordinary actor who deserves a bigger spot under the limelights.

The Goddess of HK Cinema: Athena Chu
Male actors have dominated the Hong Kong movie industry. In those conditions, the career of a Hong Kong actress is tougher compared to their male counterpart. Only a few, the best one, make their way in the long run. A good illustration of the later sort is given by Hong Kong actress Athena Chu who confirms her great value for HK cinema with each passing year.

Tragic destiny of a screen beauty - Linda Lin Dai (1934-1964)
Linda Lin Dai emerged as an exemplar of that time in the 1960s when Hong Kong cinema began to reconstruct a Chinese past and reinvent a Chinese present “beyond the Great Wall” that had become the “bamboo curtain” after Mao’s victory in 1949.

Stephen Chow, King of Cantonese comedy
With the release of Shaolin Soccer in 2001, the HK film industry revealed to the world his best comedian from the nineties: Stephen Chow Sing Chi, also know as the King of 'Moleitau', a Cantonese word to describe his non-sensical humour. In 2004, Chow is at it again with action mixed comedy packed movie Kung Fu Hustle. Either you hate it, either you love it, but nobody can surely stay mute before such cartoon sense of humour and crazy creativity.

The HUI Brothers saga
Long before Stephen Chow, the Hui brothers dominated the HK box office from the mid seventies to the mid eighties. Their non-sensical humor inspired many actors and filmmakers. Not only they could display 1 gag every minute but also provide a fair vision on the HK society of the time and address social issues. Let have a look back to those who brought back the Cantonese-language cinema up to date in HK and save the film industry’s day after the loss of Bruce Lee.
