The international scope of Hong Kong's alternative cinema scene comes into sharp focus in this conversation with Roger Garcia, John Woo, and award-winning novelist, playwright, and screenwriter Jessica Hagedorn. Roger Garcia writes about cinema, programs films for festivals in the United States and Europe, and has produced box-office hit movies in Hollywood and independent films in Asia. John Woo is co-founder and executive producer at Woo Art International in New York City. The conversation begins with a discussion of a representative program of experimental films by three filmmakers—Jim Shum, Comyn Mo, and Raymond Red, all produced in Hong Kong and Manila in the 1980s under Garcia's Modern Films Productions company, and shown at the Hollywood/Hong Kong at the Borders: Alternative Perspectives, Alternative Cinema symposium in April 2004.
