Film scholar Mr. Kit Hung produces videos for charity causes
14 Feb 2013
Mr. Kit Hung, Lecturer of the Academy of Film at the School of Communication, used his expertise in filmmaking to produce a promotional video and a short film for two non-profit organisations.
He was invited by IFVA greenlab of the Hong Kong Arts Centre to produce a short film for the Employees Retraining Board (ERB). To inform and inspire Hong Kong people, the ERB commissioned four films featuring actual students trained under their programmes. Mr. Hung, one of the four prominent indie directors invited to participate, combined masterful imagery with heartfelt concern for his subjects to create a life-affirming film.
His film “Tomorrow is Another Day” features new immigrant, Nguyen Thi Thom, who did not speak a word of Cantonese when she came to Hong Kong, but remained unfazed by what life sent her way. With optimism and perseverance, she grits her teeth and changes her life for the better. By the end of the film, she fully integrates into Hong Kong society. Click here to view the film:
Mr. Hung was also invited by Food Link Foundation, a non-profit making organisation, to produce a promotional video to urge people not to waste food and to raise their awareness of the problems of food wastage. The video was first shown at the Foundation’s charity movie premiere of Les Misérables on 20 December 2012. It has been widely screened on local TV channels and cinemas. Click hereto view the video.
