Nanyang Trilogy RESTORED | Talk
Asian Film Archive Presents: Nanyang Trilogy (RESTORED) - screening the restored films of 南洋三部曲 (Nanyang Trilogy) for the first time, 61 years after its release.
Produced by the Kong Ngee Company and shot in 1957 Singapore and Malaya, the three Cantonese films are 血染相思谷 (Blood Stains the Valley of Love), 唐山阿嫂 (China Wife) and 椰林月 (Moon Over Malaya). Led by the youthful idols of the time, 谢贤 (Patrick Tse Yin), 嘉玲 (Patsy Kar Ling) and 南红 (Nam Hung), the films introduced urban perspectives and appealed to the younger postwar audiences.
The film screenings and an accompanying exhibition will run from 23 - 25 February 2018 at the Gallery Theatre, National Museum of Singapore.
