Director: Mabel Cheung

Synopsis: Cheung’s first bonafide hit, the romance An Autumn’s Tale, like her earlier work, is set once again in New York City and depicts the relationship between a young woman from Hong Kong in search of her boyfriend and an older, working-class immigrant who has lived in Chinatown for years. Making effective use of its stars Chow Yun-Fat and Cherie Chung, the film was a major success at the box-office and won many awards, including Best Film at the Hong Kong Film Awards and Best Male Lead at the Taipei Golden Horse Awards.

Tickets for the screening are available via Peatix here.

This special screening of An Autumn’s Tale 秋天的童话, presented in its new digitally restored version in Cantonese will be accompanied by a Masterclass with Mabel Cheung in a separate session on the same day Sat 19 Feb, from 3-5pm.  The session is held at Shaw Lido 4 with the director tuning in via Zoom and moderated onsite by veteran local filmmaker Jason Lai, Co-founder of Oak 3 Films.

Please RSVP for the separate Masterclass here.
