Synopsis :

“Vanished Archives” is a record of the 1967 riots, an important event in contemporary Hong Kong. The production team interviewed people who were directly involved in and witnessed the riots. They are leaders from the leftist camp and trade unions, former police officers, senior government officials, members of the explosives team, journalists, and students. A large amount of newspaper clippings and declassified National Archives of the British Government were also reviewed in the process. Among all others, “Notes on 1967” (written by Ng Tik-chow, deputy head of the HK & Macao Group of the Foreign Affairs Office under the State Council) revealed that the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party was well informed of details of the riots and issued orders from time to time. For over four years, film director Connie Lo Yan-wai persevered in tracking down, consolidating, and analyzing a massive amount of information to reconstruct the profound and far-reaching impacts of this event on the territory. “Respect the facts, and learn from the lessons.” This is the vision of the director. We want to find the real 1967 Hong Kong.


六七暴動被稱為香港戰後歷史的分水嶺,亦是「香港意識」產生的起點。暴動歷時八個月,真假炸彈八千多個,造成五十一人死亡。如此重大的香港歷史多年來被刻意淡化,相關政府檔案支離破碎,香港歷史檔案館的暴動影像只剩下廿一秒。導演羅恩惠訪問了當年左派領導及他們的後人、炸彈隊成員、工會領袖、前警務人員、新聞處高官及多位親歷者,並找到當時負責聯繫港澳的中共負責人吳荻舟的工作日記手本《67筆記》,以及他被批鬥時的《交待材料》,以歷史文獻還原中共幕後操縱的真相;再輔以舊報章、政府文件及英國解密檔案,以近乎「潔癖」的求真精神,歷時四載,拍成紀錄片《消失的檔案》。
