In the Show – January 25th 2011

10-year-old guitarist Yuto Miyazawa

Pop music is usually considered music for the younger generation. But just how young? Performing in Hong Kong last weekend was Japanese guitarist Yuto Miyazawa. He’s already built quite a name for himself … and he hasn’t even hit puberty.

Movie Review – “Hereafter”

Clint Eastwood’s “Hereafter” focuses on several different characters: Marie (Cecile de France), a French journalist who is caught up in a tsunami and has a near-death experience, George (Matt Damon) who actually can talk to dead people but realises what some consider a gift is – for him – a curse, and 11-year-old twins Jason and Marcus (George and Frankie McLaren) who are split up by a fatal road accident. The stories take place mostly in Paris, San Francisco, and London. All three are linked by a connection with life after death. The movie has met with mixed reviews, but our own Gary Pollard tells us what he thinks.

Two Western Photographers in Hong Kong

Sometimes it seems every square inch of Hong Kong has been photographed thousands of times. It’s one of the world’s most photographed cities, not only by the local photographers who are out every weekend shooting their girlfriends, boyfriends, dogs, or anything else that moves, but also by visitors from other countries. Many photographers, whether local or from overseas, focus on the usual sights. Others decide to look at things from a completely different angle. This week, we spoke to two Western photographers who have made Hong Kong their home and examine it from new perspectives: Simon Virgile Bertrand and Evangelo Costadimas.

In the studio Ama Huen-ning

Finally, in our studio painter, singer, and previously guest presenter of “The Works” and “Culture Dim Sum”, Ama Huen-ning talks to us about her upcoming concert and CD, and her new published art book. She also sings a song from the new CD.
