The release of John Woo's The Killer in 1989 helped focus the eyes of filmfolk worldwide upon Hong Kong, previously equated with kung-fu movies and little else. Yet there is much more to Hong Kong cinema than John Woo's balletic gunplay, Jackie Chan's spectacular martial arts stunt showcases, and the many Chinese Ghost Stories which are increasingly familiar to Western eyes. Cine East collects together the thoughts of a dozen of Hong Kong's most respected film-makers and performaers - some of whom have never been interviewed in English before. Subjects interviewed include distinguished director Johnnie To, Hong Kong superstar and internationally acclaimed actress Maggie Cheung, rising young star Gig Leung, director Andrew Lau and highly esteemed actors Lau Ching Wan, Anthony Wong and Simon Yam. Together the interviews in Cine East illuminate the diversity, energy and talent to be found in the most exciting cinema in the world!

Review:

Cine East is more accurate and worthwhile than the majority of HK cinema books published thus far. The book is heavily illustrated with stills and posters and the layout is good. -- Video Watchdog

Sprinkled with ad slicks and photos, well-packaged and informative, this offers a look at some of the HK filmmakers who helped make it one of the most exciting industry's of the 90s. -- Shock Cinema

This is a fascinating look at Hong Kong cinema from an Eastern perspective, which escapes the typical concentration on martial arts, gunplay and ghost movies to give an overview of what the industry's really like. -- Headpress

Synopsis:

A collection of interviews with a dozen of Hong Kong's film-makers and performers. The thoughts of the film-makers and performers illuminate the diversity, energy and talent to be found in cinema. Wood aims to provide a perspective on what the Hong Kong film industry is like.
