A Review by Konrad Ng, University of Hawai'i, USA
[...]

It has been a decade since Hong Kong's handover to China, an event that, in Hong Kong: Culture and the Politics of Disappearance (Minnesota University Press, 1997), Ackbar Abbas writes about as shaping the narrative and style of Hong Kong film culture. Abbas's work presented a cultural imaginary in which film was a chosen medium to negotiate Hong Kong's ethos of post-colonialism, hyper-capitalism, im/migration and Chinese-ness. Following the handover, scholars and academic presses picked up on what was recognized by Abbas and already popularized by Quentin Tarantino and "Midnight" film festival programmers for years: the meaning of Hong Kong cinema exceeds national borders and offers a productive point of departure for contemporary film studies.

Since the millennium, publications such as Esther Yau's edited volume, At Full Speed: Hong Kong Cinema in a Borderless World (University of Minnesota Press, 2001) and Meaghan Morris, Siu Leung Li and Stephen Chan Ching-kiu's edited work, Hong Kong Connections Transnational Imagination in Action Cinema (Duke University Press, 2006) have takes up Abbas's line of research by examining the transnational, diasporic and regional dimensions of Hong Kong cinema and its implications for contemporary film studies. Hong Kong Film, Hollywood and the New Global Cinema: No Film is an Island is the latest text to join this area of film scholarship.
