ABSTRACT

History just keeps repeating itself. In 1967, Hong Kong was a colony of the British Empire. Influenced by the Cultural Revolution, many Hong Kong people had developed an anti-British sentiment. To make it worse, the governance policies implemented by the then British Hong Kong government were way behind the actual development situation of Hong Kong. As a result, the infamous "1967 Leftist Riots" broke out.

Today, 15 years after the handover, antagonism between the government and its people continues. Social movements leaded by the post-80s and 90s generations have once again revealed the discrepancy between the SAR's governance policies and the reality of the Hong Kong society.

Although the historical background back in 1967 is totally different from today's, many phenomena are just like Deja vu. The paradox then becomes the entry point of our movie script writing research "No.1 Chung Ying Street". Meanwhile, history rewrites itself through constant reviews.
