FEMALE directors from Hong Kong will be celebrated in a new season at the Cornerhouse in Manchester which starts tomorrow.

Visible Secrets: Hong Kong’s Women Filmmakers will showcase the imagination and vibrancy of these directors and their work through an exciting programme of screenings, events and special guests.

From the arty to the avant-garde, Hong Kong cinema has a strong tradition of women working behind the camera. Surprisingly, however, most of their work has rarely been seen in the UK.

Addressing this omission Visible Secrets presents a selection of UK premieres, showcasing the contemporary films of Ann Hui, one of the best known women filmmakers currently working in Hong Kong and introducing new directors including Yan Yan Mak, Barbara Wong, Aubrey Lam and Tsang Tsui Shan.
