Charity Premiere “Reporter”

The event, held on 18 June 2011, was organized by the CUHK Journalism and Communication Alumni Association. One of the 4th Refugee Film Festival’s movies, “Reporter”, was shown as a charity premiere. More than 100 alumni and students crowded the venue.

“Reporter” is a feature documentary about Nicholas Kristof, the two-time Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for the New York Times, who almost single-handedly put the crisis in Darfur on the world map. The film puts the viewer in Kristof’s pocket, revealing the man and his methods, and just how and why real reporting is vital to our democracy, our world-awareness, and our capacity to be a force for good.

After the film show, Mr. Au Ka-lun Allan, veteran documentary producer and Ms. Cheung Chui-yung Susanna, renowned journalist and war correspondent, shared their thoughts on the film. They held the view that media in Hong Kong seldom covers stories in developing countries not because of the lack of resources but the resource allocation problem. Alumni commented that it was a meaningful experience and hoped that the Alumni Association would continue to hold different kinds of activities in the future.
