Public Screening: Lighthouse Memories: Green Island Lighthouse (English)

As we bid farewell to the tumultuous year 2020, we stand strong together facing the future. Lighthouse Heritage Research Connections project team of the Library has been working conjointly with faculty to cultivate and empower our students with the strength to keep pace with the ever-changing world. Our teaching and learning support on historical lighthouse rediscovery have enhanced the tenacity of our students, equipping them with confidence and vigor needed to face the most economically, socially, and culturally challenging times.

This documentary, the collaborative work of our student researchers from various disciplines, should also inspire all viewers to forge ahead on the path advocating for ourselves and our communities for a brighter future.

We would like to record here our heartfelt thanks to the Department of Media and Communications and Department of Linguistics and Translation of CityU, the Marine Department of the Hong Kong Government, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum, and the Association of China Trend Studies (HK), for their unfailing support throughout the production of the documentary. Special thanks also go to CUHK University Librarian Ms. Louise Jones, whose voice-over gave the documentary a firm and elegant finishing touch.
