Piccadilly Revisited is a film and music performance inspired by the life and loves of Hollywood’s first Chinese film star, Anna May Wong, and the classic British silent movie Piccadilly, in which she played a starring role.
Wong is the only Asian-American actress with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. She worked with Dietrich and Olivier and graced the pages of Vogue, Tatler and Vanity Fair.
Composers Suki Mok and Ruth Chan perform a new score, based on a storyboard developed by co-writers Alice Lee and David Tse Ka-Shing, to the backdrop of a screening of Piccadilly, which was described by Martin Scorsese as “Bold, beautifully crafted… one of the truly great films of the silent era”.
