AbstractWhen Hong Kong became ‘motherless’ in 1949, her film industry was cut off from the Mainland market. Official shutdown of that market followed in 1952. Given the British colonial legacy of a common administrative system and despite Singapore’s subsequent independence, interaction between Singapore and Hong Kong strengthened. In addition, the British administration of Hong Kong stepped up support for the production of non-left-wing films. Meanwhile, Great Wall, Phoenix and Sun Luen (collectively referred to as GPS) stood out as three left-wing producers, along with Union Film, which also had close left-wing connections; they too focused on Singaporean and Malaysian audiences.

Sun Luen’s inaugural production, The Prodigal Son, featured a main character who is an Overseas Chinese returnee to Hong Kong. In 1955, Sun Luen released A Teacher's Reward, a film about the education of Overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia. Then in 1961, Sun Luen’s director Lo Dun turned out Human Cargo, a two-part screen adaptation of left-wing novelist Chun Muk’s The Gold Coast, which tells of human trafficking and its place in the history of hardships endured by Overseas Chinese. This paper focuses on exploring how Sun Luen positioned itself in the Cold War era, as well as the cultural perspective of left-wing companies towards Overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia, as represented by Sun Luen.
