Video: Mabel Cheung’s Masterclass | Asian Film Awards Academy

Singapore Film Society had the great honour of hosting a Masterclass this March with Director Mabel Cheung, the first of the Asian Film Awards Academy (AFAA) Masterclass series to be held in Singapore, with our VIP guest joining in virtually in front of a live audience seated in the cinema. The Masterclass with Mabel Cheung was organised in collaboration with the AFAA, and sponsored by Create Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Film Development Fund.

Don’t worry if you missed the actual event, the video of the masterclass is now available for everyone to learn more about Mabel Cheung’s stories. Watch it now and get a glimpse of her directing journey in Hong Kong cinema.

 

Mabel Cheung is an important female filmmaker and one of the leading directors in Hong Kong cinema. Her critically acclaimed migration trilogy explored themes of identity, race, gender, and culture during the height of migration in the 1980s, and created stories with historical significance by documenting the immigrants’ experiences. Director Cheung’s various works, as well as her career as an influential director, producer, and scriptwriter, were discussed during the Masterclass.
