How Hongkong movies shaped my life

PRESENTED ON DEC 11, 2016
IN HO CHI MINH CITY @ VOL 10

What makes you who you are today? Is it your family, your friends, what you have done or the places you have been to?

For Trần Duy Nguyễn, the answer lies in the 90s Hong Kong movies. To sit around the TV, watching Hong Kong films being played by a VHS player is the kind of memories many 8x and 9x Vietnamese share. It is common, but also very personal since such movies are the main and almost only form of entertainment there used to be.

BY PAUL HUTCHINSON
@ VOL 3 ON NOV 06, 2014

Paul Hutchinson, film lover and founder of Bedford Film Festival takes us on a journey through the film scenes in his head. From the classics to the most recent, films are more than stories to show and tell, but to express one's emotions to one or hundred people.  And through the movie pictures are how people can be touched and understand the story teller from behind the camera.

BY PAT KEWLEY
@ VOL 16 ON APR 14, 2016

"The world's first movie theater was in Buffalo, New York."

In Buffalo Vitascope: The Story of the World's First Movie Theater from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, comedian and cartoonist Pat Kewley tells the true story of Vitascope Hall, which opened on Buffalo, New York's Main Street in 1896 and was likely the world's first permanent, specially constructed movie theater. Using period photographs, newspaper clippings, and his own cartoon drawings, Kewley spreads the word about Buffalo's amazing & unique place in film history, touching on the early days of moviegoing, the first films, and the unsung Buffalonians who helped pioneer the film industry in our own backyard.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, Jun 29th, 2016.
