‘Inside The Red Brick Wall’ Documentary Wins Hong Kong Film Critics Prize
Documentary feature “Inside the Red Brick Wall,” which chronicles one of the most dramatic chapters of the 2019 Hong Kong protests, bagged the best film at the 27th Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards.

The best director prize went to Peter Chan Ho-sun for “Leap,” a sports drama based on the trajectory of China’s national women volleyball team. The film’s star Gong Li, who plays the legendary coach Lang Ping, won best actress, awards organizers announced on Monday.

“Memories to Choke On, Drinks to Wash Them Down,” a four-part anthology film centering around different facades of Hong Kong life, took the best screenplay prize. Awards were decided after six hours of deliberation and three rounds of voting on Sunday. But the critics chose not to present a best actor award because of the lack of narrative film releases in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
