Hong Kong director Peter Chan will curate a film screening on the theme of contemporary Hong Kong cinema at the Broadway Cinematheque, Beijing.

Chan’s two hit movies Comrades, almost a Love Story and Alan and Eric: Between Hello and Goodbye are among the 12 films to be screened from Sept 29 to Oct 10.

Also to be screened is director Mabel Cheung's "migration trilogy": Illegal Immigrant (1985), An Autumn's Tale (1987) and Eight Taels of Gold (1989).

Other titles include Ann Hui's Song of Exile and My American Grandson, and Ho Yim's Homecoming.

Chan summarizes the films as representing something special in Hong Kong cinema: the filmmakers, most of whom have overseas experience, explore the city from the perspective of an outsider.
