The shadow man

Ken Jacobs is the greatest filmmaker you've never heard of. For 50 years he has made movies that reveal how cinema works - how it casts its subtle illusion on the brain. Films such as Ontic Antics Starring Laurel And Hardy, which uses found footage of the comedy stars, and his epic Star Spangled to Death, have made him one of the most important figures in the American avant garde.

THIS MAY YET turn out to be another story that illustrates what makes Hong Kong the way it is. It proves that anything can happen here as long as you have imagination - and talent.

Early last year, three business students from Polytechnic University (PolyU) bought a digital video camera and started shooting short clips just for fun.

Chance to look back at Anger

BEFORE the Hongkong Film Festival there is the American avant-garde cinema series at the Arts Centre. On offer are experimental films, curated by Jonas Meka of the Anthology Film Archives in New York, from film-makers who have made an indelible mark on the industry.
