Happy 57th birthday, “Long Hair”, Leung Kwok-hung!

I want to wish “Long Hair”, Leung Kwok-hung, happy 57th birthday, good health and all the best! Here is my 2005 documentary “Long Hair Revolution” filmed only two months after his election to Legislative Council of Hong Kong. I’m happy to say my first documentary has been added to the federal government “Library and Archives Canada” permanent collection in Ottawa.

Long Hair (Leung Kwok-hung) on the phone (which is almost always)

My updated Google+ Bragging rights sounds cool to the very biased me:

Kempton’s first feature-length documentary Long Hair Revolution (2005) is preserved in Library and Archives Canada‘s permanent collection “for the benefit of present and future generations”.

Long Hair Revolution (長毛革命) (71 minutes, 2005) (imdb) was my first documentary and you can watch it  right on YouTube. In the film, I tried to “find” and understand the activist Leung Kwok-hung (nickname “Long Hair”) behind his Hong Kong Legislative Council member and rebel persona. I am honoured that my first attempt in filmmaking was accepted by the 2005 Calgary International Film Festival and I also received some post-production funding from the wonderful Academy Awards winning National Film Board of Canada.

I hope you will enjoy Long Hair Revolution (長毛革命) on YouTube.
