I called it a day in 1991 after directing two films. Nine years in this business is like a roller-coaster ride, lots of up and down that drive you nuts, but what a life experience.
Film is not truth. Film is a lie that makes us realize what truth and reality are. In this business, the winner takes it all, and then you will see a whole bunch of clowns around you working as “cheerleaders”. Of course the loser was standing small. It’s simple and plain, and I have no complaints. After all it’s just a game.
Born in Hong Kong, Peter Ho Cheuk-wing immigrated to Canada in the early 1970s, attending University of Waterloo after finishing high school. He returned to Hong Kong in 1982, working in the Hong Kong Bureau of the American company ABC News, then switching to Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) in 1983, serving as production assistant. Between 1984 and 1987, he worked in RTHK, serving as production assistant and continuity person for the program Below the Lion Rock. He also worked as assistant director on Clarence Fok’s Wrong Wedding Trail (1984).
But it was not until 1986 did Ho officially joined the film industry, working in various capacities with directors such as Johnnie To, Kirk Wong, Raymond Lee, Lee Hon-to and Billy Chan.
In 1991, Ho directed two films Running on Empty (1991) and Hong Kong Godfather (1991), after which he left the film industry.
