(Yours was not a very assertive lead. Why should the readers share the director's delight? Why should we care if he was lucky to have his documentary film showed in a film festival? You should but you didn't tell us that in your lead. A young director's insight into two young men pursuing their dreams acting in female roles in classical Cantonese opera was a more interesting subject to readers, I guess.)

My Way is my wish--105065 2012年11月7日 (三) 00:18 (UTC)

(7 November 2012) Film director Cheung Cheuk said yesterday at a talk in Shue Yan University that he was delighted when his first documentary My Way released.

“I think I'm lucky that my work can be screened in Hong Kong Asian Film Festival,” said Cheuk. “It's my hope to film a documentary after I've completed several stories.”

Cheuk admitted that it is a harsh job to do a documentary than a movie because the plot of a movie can be set by the producers but that of a documentary can not be decided by them.

“Actually,” he said, “my wish in producing this documentary is to know more about Hong Kong.”

My Way is a story about two boys who love Chinese Opera and are keen on being Dans, the female character in Chinese opera, but one of the boys is not able to be a Dan anymore as his voice started to change as he got mature. The documentary records their story from “sisters” to opposing characters.

Cheuk believes that Chinese opera is a thing we should keep record, and the story of male Dans is also worth drawing attention. When Cheuk delivered his idea to famous director Sylvia Chang, she loved the plot very much and showed support to his move. Cheuk revised the story a bit after researching and receiving comments, and it finally becomes My Way.

Cheuk added that male Dans were very common in Beijing but it was rare in Hong Kong.

After the production of My Way, Cheuk found that it would be a chance for new directors to become famous by filming documentaries.

“So long as you find a new story of a person that is different from the others and film it, this will catch people's eyes to notice your production,” he explained.

Cheuk did not agree the saying that it takes long to invest in a documentary since the cost of making a documentary is relatively lower than a movie. He said that a documentary could be done just with a camera.

“The crucial point is whether you want to do it,” Cheuk said.
