故事簡介

本片追蹤「華南首位女導演」伍錦霞 (1914-1970) 的事蹟,她生長於三藩市,一生男裝打扮、特立獨行,人皆稱為「霞哥」。她二十嵗出頭就在荷里活監製粵語片,並在1935至1949年間,在香港和美國兩地製編導了十部粵語片,大多富於愛國主義、女性主義色彩。伍錦霞生前為各地媒體關注,死後卻被人遺忘了二十五年。直至近年她僅存的兩部影片、私人相簿陸續從歷史的塵埃中浮現,才漸漸有人開始研究這位先鋒女導演,並且重提香港電影中被遺忘的第一個黃金時代。片中包括李小龍在銀幕上的首次亮相、首位華裔國際明星黃柳霜訪華、宋慶齡和宋美齡姐妹參與的為抗戰募捐的一碗飯運動,以及伍錦霞鏡頭中早年香港、舊金山和紐約等地的大量珍貴的歷史影像。本片由香港資深電影人、評論家人羅卡監製,女導演魏時煜編導,已經在荷里活業内雜誌《荷里活報道》等中外媒體上獲得好評,是香港獨立紀錄片中的佳作。

Synopsis

Hong Kong’s first “directress” was a San Francisco native and an open lesbian. Esther Eng (1914-1970) was a true pioneer in many senses. She made 11 Cantonese language films—one in Hollywood, five in Hong Kong, three in California, one in Hawaii and one in New York—all for Chinese audiences before, during and after WWII. She gave Bruce Lee his screen debut in his role as a baby girl in her 1941 film Golden Gate Girl. When production slowed after 1949, she expanded her late father’s Chinese film import business and, later, ran theatres in New York that screened Chinese movies. While in New York City, she also opened at least four restaurants, including the Esther Eng Restaurant, a fine dining establishment frequented by celebrities like Malone Brando and Tennessee Williams. Following her death in 1970, her obituary appeared in both Variety magazine and the New York Times. This documentary has received positive reviews in both Chinese and English media including Hollywood’s trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter and is considered a significant work of Hong Kong independent documentary.
