The Hong Kong New Wave started in 1979. During the 1980s, the film industry began to flourish; many Chinese households did not have a TV at the time. Film served as the primary source of entertainment.[1] Many of the New Wave directors had a Western-style education and thus, were influenced by western filmmaking and culture.[2] The films of the New Wave, stylistically, lacked coherence; rather the term was used to make the distinction between new filmmakers and studio filmmaking.[3] These films utilized new technology, like synchronous sound, new editing techniques, and filming movies on location.[4]

Second Wave

In 1984, the New Wave began to gain attention from international audiences, thus prompting what became known as the "Second Wave". These directors include Stanley Kwan, Wong Kar-wai, Mabel Cheung, Alex Law, Fruit Chan, Peter Chan, and Tammy Cheung.[4]
