This lecture starts by discussing Hong Kong directors’ involvement in co-productions and Mainland China's 'main melody' films during the 2010s, exploring cross-border film collaborations and attempting to deconstruct the binary framework of Mainland China and Hong Kong. The focus is shifted to cultural translation as a means to understand changes in contemporary film production, and to shed light on the future development of Hong Kong studies.
