Cheuk Cheung, the director of My Way, said that even though he lived in Hong Kong, he didn't know Hong Kong very well. To some extent, documentary provided an opportunity for him to know this city better.


My Way, produced by Sylvia Chan, is in theatre now as one of the films of Hong Kong Asia Film Festival (HKAFF) this year. It records how two young men in Hong Kong have taken up female roles in Cantonese opera for a decade, which is already a rare choice for Hong Kongers.


Cheuk Cheung used to take part in drama production. It’s his first time to make documentary film.


“ I think in drama production, you can rewrite the plot whenever you want. The only thing you need is just a pen. However, documentary is totally different”, said Cheuk. But he enjoyed making documentary because it’s a more realistic way to tell stories and he considered it as a breakthrough of his career.


My Way is one of the productions of CNEXT program, a non-profit foundation devoted to the production and promotion of documentaries of the Chinese people. CNEXT plans to support filmmakers from Hong Kong, mainland China and Taiwan to make 100 documentaries of 10 different topics in 10 years, with an aim to connect Chinese culture with the world.


According to Ada Li, the Foundation Manager of CNEXT, Hong Kong has the fewest productions among the three areas. She thought the reason of this was because commissioning program was not popular in Hong Kong when in other places like U.K., 60 to 70 percent of the film or television productions were commissioning programs.


Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) is the only medium that has the program commissioning. Other broadcasting media like Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) produces at its own expense and there are few independent production houses in Hong Kong.
