柳瑞雄 | LAU Shui Hung Benny

The most important aspects to being a director is having something to say, ideas to express and things to share. If one finds himself with not much to say, he can consider serving as producer, scriptwriter or assistant director.

After all, it’s joyous to be involved in film production. It’s not important whether or not I am a director.


Born in Hong Kong in 1960, Benny Lau Shui-hung studied film at Baptist University and entered the film industry after graduating in 1984. Working in the cinematography, sound recording and directing teams, he was assistant director for many films, including The Other ½ and the Other ½ (1988), A Brief Encounter in Shinjuku (1990) and Cageman (1992).
