Episode 12 – Wong Kar-Wai’s Hong Kong
Original air date: February 13, 2010




Producer Ivy Lin talks about Episode 12 of Current City:

Being a huge fan of the legendary Hong Kong film director Wong Kar-wai, I was hoping to schedule an interview with him during my short stay in Hong Kong. Since I am no famous reporter and Wong Kar-wai is a very busy man, my dream to meet him in person didn’t come true for me this time.
Since I have never been to Hong Kong before, even though I am originally from Taiwan, I decided to see Hong Kong for the first time by visiting some film locations of my favorite Wong Kar-wai films: Chungking Express (1994), In the Mood for Love (2000) and 2046 (2004).
My friend Iris Lo, formerly an executive creative director at Wieden+Kennedy Shanghai, joined me on this Wong Kar-wai tour.

Music for this episode comes from the films mentioned above and includes “Chungking Express Theme,” by Frankie Chan and Roel A. Garcia; “Casta Diva (Norma),” by Angela Gheorghiu; “Aquello Ojos Verdes,” by Nat King Cole; and “What a Difference a Day Makes,” by Dinah Washington.

About:


Current City is a series of radio documentaries hosted by Ivy Lin and inspired by her recent travel to Scandinavia. Current City features architecture, music, film, places, and people from Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Reykjavik. Current City will begin with episodes featuring one city per show, then Portland, Ivy's current city will come into the mix for the purpose to create dialogues/exchange between Portland and these cities by "pairing up" architects, urban designers, musicians, film directors, cultural houses, local record stores/labels, etc. As Ivy continues to travel, more cities have joined Current City, including Taipei, Zurich, Hong Kong, Berlin, and Barcelona.
