Born in China and raised in Hong Kong, Evans Yiu Shing Chan is a critic, dramatist, and award-winning film director. Chan has been compared to the avant-garde filmmaker Chris Marker, “the most intellectual of the current crop of Hong Kong directors,” wrote Barry Long in Hong Kong Babylon. He is also a program consultant to New York’s Downtown Pace Arts Centre, a veteran cultural critic, and former advisor to the Hong Kong International Film Festival. Chan has written for the Indian-based film journal Cinemaya and The Hong Kong Standard, where he was the staff film critic from 1981 to 1984. Since 1984, Chan has divided his time between New York and Hong Kong.
