Screening: Butterfly and Red Pear Blossom (digitally restored version)
Sharing: Sam Ho (Film Researcher), Koven Lo (Conservation, Hong Kong Film Archive)
In 2019, Hong Kong Film Archive made the first restoration of a Cantonese opera film, the Butterfly and Red Pear Blossom (蝶影紅梨記) of 1959. Center for the Arts is screening the digitally restored version and inviting speakers, Mr. Sam Ho and Mr. Koven Lo, to share the experience and technology behind with us. This will provide a glimpse into the technologies of film restoration and the work of building up digital archives that are of great academic values in the 21st century.
