Retrospect of local animation industry in the past decade through the eyes of the 13 units of animators in Hong Kong

The Exhibition is jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Hong Kong Arts Centre, and co-organised by Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Comix Home Base. With oral history as the main approach, the exhibition focuses on milestones in the past decade. The project interviewed 13 units of representative animators in Hong Kong, providing an overview on the development and the outlook of the local animation industry.

The curatorial team hopes that visitors will not only appreciate the works by local animators but also understand that the local animation industry plays an unneglectable important role in the culture of Hong Kong.

To enhance the visitors’ understanding of local animation and to enrich their experience, there will be screenings of award winning animation films during the exhibition, where some of the footage has never or seldom been showcased publicly. It’s a not-to-be-missed event for anyone interested in animation.

Programme One: Moving Tales
60’ / DV-Cam
Seven animation clips, in 60 minutes, show affection of our loved ones and how it can bring us to self-actualisation; explore our inner selves and ask questions about life and death.
