HONG KONG HAS BEEN BANGING ITS HEAD ON THE WALL TO PRESERVE ITS BRICKS AND MORTAR CULTURAL HERITAGE. NOW, IT'S ALSO TRYING TO DECIDE WHAT ITS INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE IS. THEY RANGE FROM RITUALS AND FESTIVALS, SONG AND DANCE, ARTS AND CRAFT, EVEN TARTS AND TEA. OUR INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE IS A VITAL COMPONENT OF OUR COLLECTIVE MEMORIES. BUT PROGRESS AND DEVELOPMENT THREATEN A CHUNK OF OUR TRADITIONS. HOW CAN WE PRESERVE THEM FOR PROSTERITY? WHERE RITUALS ARE CONCERNED, TIN HAU, GODDESS OF THE SEA, FEATURES PROMINENTLY, REFLECTING OUR FISHING VILLAGE ROOTS. PRODUCER NAOMI KWOK TAKES US TO A ONCE IN A DECADE EXTRAVAGANZA, ON TAPMUN.
