Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild - Directors - Sou Chour LO
羅舜泉 | LO Sou Chour

Directors Sun Chung and Ringo Lam are my mentors. Drama comes from life; listen more, watch more, observe more, then analyze. Drama develops out of expectation but within reason.

My most memorable experience as director was in 1993, making the film Chez N’ham with Eric Tsang and Joey Wong. Wong was chased by killers in a scene, which was shot in a mansion. I was showing her where to flee, including jumping down three floors out of a window. I was so into it that I myself jumped, ending up motionless on the ground. Everyone was shocked and I was sent to the hospital. Fortunately I was fine.

The actors I admire most are Chow Yun-fat, Leslie Cheung and Cherie Chung. They were always friendly and affable. If I didn’t become a director, I would be a cop.


Alan Lo Sou-chour was born in 1954 in Cambodia. During the Khmer Rouge years, Lo’s family was persecuted. Interned in a Khmer Rouge camp in 1974, all but two of 19 family members survived. Escaping Cambodia in 1977, he was rescued and sent to a refugee camp in Thailand after his boat overturned in public waters. On Christmas Eve 1978, Lo entered Hong Kong illegally, later joining the actors’ training program at Shaw Brothers in 1980. He then worked as a continuity person before becoming assistant director, a position he held for years, earning the nickname Assistant Director of Gold.

Lo made his first film Girls in the Hood in 1994, co-directing with Kant Leung. Since then he had directed many films throughout the 1990s and 2000s, working with such actors as Chow Yun-fat, Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Stephen Chow.

Lo later went into public service, elected Tai Po District Council Member in 2003 and winning re-election in 2007.
