intangible heritage panorama of hong kong
In the project, our group chose Lam Tsuen Tin Hau temple and wishing tree to film. This is a good idea for me although I am a local I didn’t go to Lam Tsuen very often. Most of the people go there when the Lunar New Year, usually there are a lot of people when you arrive you just start to worship and making wish. There have no opportunity for you to look around and of course, there is no time for you to think about the history or background of this ritual.
Thanks for this project I have a chance to know more about my own traditional culture. I think this filming also is a preservation work because this can help more people to concern about our heritage if this project really can run 😀
This let me know how important to promote our local heritage, no matter tangible or intangible. People always ignore the thing around them but straightly they will admire foreign heritage. I think it is the power of the mass media, people will focus on what they saw on TV or internet but foreign what next to them. This situation is serious in Hong Kong; government should use the power of the mass media to promote local festivals and heritage.
