Hong Kong films get China boost

Investments from mainland and 3D technology help revive industry's fortunes.

    It has been 50 years since the release on one of the Hong Kong film industry's best-known productions, "The World of Suzie Wong".

    The industry was badly damaged by the Asian financial crisis of the 1990s, but thanks to a boost from mainland China and the success of 3D technology, it is now making a recovery.
