Art draws its material from daily lives and purifies the material, returning it to the origin of our daily lives. To purify is to start from zero.
Life is an infinite series of repetitions. In this tedious and repetitive process, one must search for change and reformation. The motivation behind this search is creativity.
Creativity does not belong only to young directors. The issue with some older directors is that they are trapped in beautiful memories of the past, refusing to walk out.
I am elated to see that directors who were born in the 1950s and those born in the 1990s can collectively create a new paradise for the performing arts sector.
Tony Leung Hung-wah entered show business at the age of nine, acting in children’s dramas and hosting children’s programs at Television Broadcast Limited (TVB). At 19, he was accepted into TVB’s artist training program. Upon graduation, he not only found many acting opportunities but also a chance to write scripts for movies such as Men from the Gutter (1983) and Brothers from Walled City (1982). He also acted in Brothers from Walled City. From 1989 to 1992, he worked for D & B Films and was responsible for the planning of projects and writing. His writing credits include Happy Together (1989), Heart Into Hearts (1990), A Bite of Love (1990), Middle Man (1990) and To Catch a Thief (1991), all box-office hits that earned over HK$ 10 million apiece.
In 1996, Leung took on directing duties for the first time and codirected Mystery Files with Chiang Kar-chun and Wong Chingwah. The lack of commercial success meant that Leung had to wait for three years before his next chance at the helm. In his forty-plus-year career, the multi-talented filmmaker has also produced over 50 features and acted in over 20.
