With Patrick Lung Kong in person
Dir. Patrick Lung Kong. 1976, 98 mins. Archival 35mm print from Hong Kong Film Archive. With Josephine Siao, Charlie Chin, Chiao Chiao, Patrick Lung Kong. Filmed on the occasion of the 28th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, Hiroshima 28 was the first all-Hong Kong crew to make a feature in Japan. Lung Kong anchors a bittersweet melodrama in the historical milieu in the months following the horrific events of August 6, 1945. Josephine Siao—a star whose career had become synonymous with the filmmaker’s work over the past decade—plays a young tour guide to a Hong Kong reporter researching the tragic effects of the atom bomb, their journey forming an odyssey through the city’s ruins.
