Hong Kong director Stanley Kwan on Subversity Webcast

Irvine -- Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, this evening broadcasts an interview with Stanley Kwan, a Hong Kong filmmaker. He was interviewed this past June when he was in San Francisco to accept a Frameline Award as filmmaker of the year at the San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, and to appear at the showing of his 1998 film, Hold You Tight. He came out three years years ago in his own documentary on Chinese films for the British Film Institute's series on The Century of Cinema. Kwan's 1996 film was Yang and Yin: Gender in Chinese Films, which also looked at homoeroticism in films from China.

Kwan is also known for other films in which women play leading roles, including Rouge (1988) and Centre Stage (1992).

He is interviewed by Subversity host Dan Tsang, a fellow Hong Konger. This program first aired over the summer, thanx to Wilson Chen, guest engineer/host.

The program airs this evening from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County, and is also Web-cast (audio streaming or MP3 via
