A Happy New Year 1937

China On Film is a significant project of BFI (The British Film Institute). This project collected many “extraordinary, rare and beautiful travelogues, newsreels and home movies from the first half of the 20th century”. Some of the footages have never been seen before. In this post, we have picked a film that shows street scenes of HK in 1937 during the Chinese New Year.

“What sets this film apart from other amateur or newsreel films dealing with similar subject matter is its focus on the lead-up to the celebrations as opposed to the spectacle of the Chinese New Year Festival itself. While the firecrackers and dragon dance are striking there is a palpable air of excitement as Hong Kong residents walk through the streets bearing gifts for their family and friends.”
