WHAT WOULD YOU DO ? (3) Interview PANG Ho-Cheung (Dream Home)

user
This probably is not the same in other cultures. How do you differ from your peers in cinema in Hong Kong ? I choose the topics I want and stick to them, no matter what. I don't sollicit co-productions, so my films are completely Hong Kong productions. It is essential for me to maintain absolute director's control.   Have you had any offers to work for Hollywood ? In fact, I have, but I refused because I want that complete artistic control over my work under a...

PANG saw it and one of his agents contacted me. When I read the first three lines of the synopsis of DREAM HOME, I really went for the idea and made up my score from there. The nice thing about w...

Watching the shorts on the plight of Bolivian children in the mining region of Potosi hurts. Have we lost all notions of concern and respect for one another ? What has Evo MORALES, now reconducted as Bolivia`s first indigenous President done in his first mandate to reinforce protection of minors in his own country. Nothing, because the situation at present is particularly alarming. Close to 90% of all the children are abused and exploited before reaching adulthood, if they ever do. http:/...
