Heiward Mak Hei-yan, The Dumb Youth Filmmaker, attended a " 'Self Discovery' and 'Self Recovery' “ in Filmmaking sharing. It is hard to identify what is a good film and the director should not worried too much about self-censorship to affect the works.


MAK pointed out it is complicated to criticize what is a good film is. A movie on commercial success is according to the box office performance. A movie gets lots of favorable comments from viewers not must become a success on commercial. Even a movie got a huge commercial success but not necessarily indicate at the art level. According to MAK, she thinks the movies produced in Hong Kong ‘Mad world’ is a good movie. The idea of the script, completion, and maturity of the production of the film is far beyond the impression of past new directors. The director of ‘Mad World’ Wong Chun, who is the new director, won the 53rd Golden Horse Award for Best New Director, the 23rd Hong Kong Film Critics Society Award for Best Director and the 36th Hong Kong Film Awards. MAK pointed out ‘Mad world’ not only for entertainment and successful to the box office performance, the issues and messages spread through the film which reaching social issues on the issue.


The self-censorship started appearing in Hong Kong movies, the attitude towards MAK is never surrendered to it and people should arrange the shots and think of the priority. MAK produced a work called ‘香港愛我’. Commercial architecture makes the script difficult to accept. There are some shots cannot be approved by the self-censorship, the company wants MAK to delete it. MAK thinks it is fine to delete some shots if the works can be widely used because the messages she wants to spread are important than some shots. It shows the priority and she does not want to lose the chance which can be communicated with the viewers of her works.


MAK thinks creative comes from actuality. When the screenwriter writing a character, the setting of the character must be combined by the people the screenwriter met before. Setting the action, facial expression, even how they buckle their button of the character, it’s all associate by the screenwriter who met before, there is no specific one.


MAK is one of the founding makers of Dumb Youth, who is the filmmaker and director. The film MAK produced called ‘EX’, ‘Love in the Buff’, ‘High Noon’ etc. MAK won the Best Screenwriter of Hong Kong Film Awards with ‘Love in the Buff’.
