10月27日周五黃昏,香港最具原創力的電影人韋家輝將到訪都大校園,與我們重温他的早期作品,並分享對人生的终極關懷。

早在電視時期,韋家輝的不少作品,已是觀眾和同行眼中的神作。進入電影界後,他是銀河映像創作路線的奠基者和靈魂人物,和電影拍檔杜琪峯導演的繆思。他極度原創,絕不重覆,不按常理出牌,且往往推陳出新。他的創作觀和世界觀,深深影響著銀河映像作品,其中對命運、選擇、生命循環、善惡因果、自由意志和人定勝天等課題的哲思,提昇了香港作品的內涵和藝術性,並釋放創作的顛覆性。

在上屆香港電影金像獎得獎致謝辭時,韋家輝首先感謝上帝,透露了他皈依基督。從對人生命運,思考果報問題,到在拍攝《神探大戰》時認定了基督教的信仰,對於這位電影人來說,有過一番怎樣的人生體會?這次嚴肅的領悟,又將會怎樣影響韋家輝未來的電影寫作?

我們誠意邀請大家參舆這場繞有意思的電影及分享會,到時亦將有其他電影人出席。

下周五6 pm在IOH F0401 室將先放映韋家輝,杜琪峯導演的電影《大隻佬》,分享會隨後约於7:30開始;由文潔華教授,影評人登徒主持。
