With us in the studio to start today's show is Douglas Gautier, the Executive Director of the Hong Kong Arts Festival. The festival's line up for 2006 was announced today. Douglas tells us what's in store. For the third time in a row, the Social Movement Resource Centre is co-hosting the 3rd Social Movement Film Festival with the activist group, Videopower. 22 films and videos are being shown in all, at the resource centre, at various university campuses, and at the Arts Centre. All have an activist agenda, and all hope to provoke more political thought. From that social activism we turn to something less strenuous: free music. Throughout this week the Hong Kong Philharmonic is giving a series of free concerts in the Sky Lobby of the AIG Tower in Central. In advance of Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern Art auction in New York early next month, three masterpieces we'd rarely get a chance to see have been on show at its office in Admiralty. They are works by Impressionist master Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Amedeo Modigliani. The Works takes a close look. In the studio we have Ennio, the human cartoon, who gives us his interpretations of Eminem, Gloria Gaynor, and Elton John. And we end with "Annie" in Hong Kong, the musical that features two Annies, over 70 children, and a real live dog on stage every night.
