Spotlight on Hong Kong Cinema

Due to its autonomy from mainland China prior to 1997, Hong Kong developed a robust movie industry free from interference, becoming the world's third largest producer of films and minting many superstars. Martial Arts masters like Bruce Lee and Chow Yun-Fat have kicked their way to Western audiences, making themselves household names the world over. But the national cinema has made a distinct artistic impact as well, with auteurs like Wong Kar-wai, who turns 57 this week, producing stylishly influential films that embody Hong Kong's rich movie tradition.
