Screening at the Landscape Terrace at Asia Society Hong Kong Center. Casual Wear is recommended.
Asia Society Hong Kong Center is steeped in history tied to the British Army. Built in the mid-19th century by the British Army, the 1.3-hectare site of Asia Society Hong Kong was originally built and used for the production and storage of explosives and ammunition. So, as MI6 calls on top agent James Bond to investigate charges against a gold bullet using assassin, and attempts to recover sensitive solar cell technology, the audience will be sitting amidst a site of great significance to the British Military’s occupation in Hong Kong.
The 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun is the ninth film of the series and the second to star actor Roger Moore as MI6 agent James Bond. Drawing on current events and interests of the time, the film is set during the 1973 energy crisis facing Britain and also reflects the immensely popular martial arts craze with a number of kung fu scenes. With scenes shot in London, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Macau, the film’s main plot revolves around James Bond as he sets out on an unofficial mission to locate the most expensive assassin named Scaramanga who has targeted and imitated Bond himself.
Roger Moore was an English actor best known for his role as James Bond in seven films in the series from 1973 to 1985. Moore made his first appearance as James Bond in 1972 in Live and Let Die, replacing Sean Connery as 007. His performance as 007 has been claimed to be witty and action-ready, despite some initial resistance after replacing Connery. Originally born in London, Moore served in the British Military during World War II before joining the film industry in the late 1940s. Before being offered and accepting the role of James Bond, Moore had experience in films and in television in both the United States and the U.K. Now deceased, in 1998 Roger Moore was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to UNICEF, and in 2003 he was promoted to Knight Commander of the same order for services to UNICEF and Kiwanis International.
