M+ Screen­ings: This is Now

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Bri­tish Film In­sti­tute Na­tional Archive, the M+ mu­seum for vis­ual cul­ture at the West Kowloon Cul­tural District is screen­ing a rarely seen pro­gram of 20 pro­fes­sion­ally re­stored Su­per 8 and 16mm films shot by Bri­tish artists dur­ing the post-punk era, spread over six the­matic pro­grams which in­clude “Home Tap­ing,” “Per­form­ing the Self,” “Video Killed the Ra­dio Star” and oth­ers. Through this tra­di­tion­ally lo-fi, DIY-in­spired medium, art un­folds in vi­brant ko­dachrome, set to the equally in­ven­tive sounds of Echo and the Bun­ny­men, The Hu­man League and Adam Ant. Through Jul 10. Broad­way Cine­math­eque, Pros­per­ous Gar­den, 3 Public Square St., Yau Ma Tei. $65-85 from cin­ema.com.hk.
