Abstract

香港新浪潮改寫了香港觀眾與影像的關係,讓我們通過影像對香港本土生活產生更大的認同感。七十年代的主流香港電影大多描寫古代的俠義世界,或者是富戲劇性的中年情慾世界;在電視上我們又看到不少中國民間故事,這些影像和故事沒有回應當時正去舊迎新的七十年代香港城市,年輕觀眾感到格格不入,直至到新浪潮的出現才全面地把香港電影都市化、本土化和年輕化。

Rewriting the relationship that Hong Kong audiences had with cinematic images, the Hong Kong New Wave allowed audiences to identify with the images on the screen, shifting our collective attitude about life in Hong Kong and shaping our identity. Costume martial arts flicks and soft porn dominated Hong Kong mainstream cinema in the 1970s. The small screen was also filled with costume dramas based on Chinese folklore. These images and stories however were completely divorced from the realities of a rapidly changing Hong Kong. Naturally, younger audiences felt distanced and alienated. The advent of the New Wave movement in Hong Kong created an urban and indigenous cinema.
