A Transnational Cinematic Text
Crossings is ostensibly a fictional narrative set in New York involving motifs familiar to many viewers of Hong Kong’s genre cinema. Yet, in reality, it represents another creative blending of concepts and traditions key to the cinema of Evans Chan. Featuring Hong Kong stars Simon Yam and Anita Yuen, it can be read an as unofficial sequel to To Liv(e). Boundaries between mainstream cinema and the avant-garde are blurred in this stimulating film that explores issues of gender, history, and nationality.
