Like many others, one of my favorite pastimes as a kid was going to the cinema to watch movies. I joined the film industry as an actor and was eventually fortunate enough to become a director. In addition to getting to know different segments of the industry, being a director has allowed me to observe the boundless creative energy of the Hong Kong and China film scenes.
I love to fantasize, and the most attractive thing is a fantasy world that inspires awe.
Fire Lee was born in Hong Kong in 1976. After graduating from the School of Drama at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts with a Bachelor’s (Honors) degree in 2001, he devoted himself to writing and performing stage plays. He was nominated for the Best Script Award at the 13th Hong Kong Drama Awards for his first play, Oldsters on Fire. He formed his own drama company, 61 Production in 2006, serving as its artistic director and directing the organization’s presentations. He wrote and directed dozens of plays, covering a wide range of topics in different genres. Lee also directed many music videos and served as lyricist for pop songs and musicals as well as hosting radio shows.
Lee began acting in film in 2001 and started writing screenplays in 2008, penning the script for director Joe Ma’s action film Sasori (2008) in the style of Japanese manga. He collaborated with Ma again the following year, co-directing Give Love (2009), a humorous but poignant love story that generated $25 million in ticket sales in China.
He directed his first film in 2012 with Love in Time, which he also wrote. The film attracted favorable reviews from critics and industry professionals alike, making him one of the most notable new directors of Hong Kong.
