Arresting cinema: surveillance and the city-state in the representation of Hong Kong
Karen Fang, pages -

Abstract

In an article that looks at mass observation from a different angle, Karen Fang argues that surveillance is the distinctive characteristic of the city state. In an illuminating account of Hong Kong cinema before and after re-unification, she describes the inter-relationships between new technologies of surveillance, law enforcement and the media, and concludes that Hong Kong is ‘the product of a police-entertainment industrial complex’.
