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.

How Hongkong movies shaped my life

BY TRAN DUY NGUYEN
@ VOL 10 ON DEC 11, 2016

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

It is common, but also very personal since such movies are the main and almost only form of entertainment there used to be.
