The Hong Kong Directors' Guild last night held its spring banquet and annual award presentation. The Ann Hui On Wa directed A SIMPLE LIFE (TOH JEH) brought her the Most Outstanding Director of the Year and the Most Recommended Film; she even received the "Honorary Grand Prize". She thanked the Directors' Guild for this honor. She said that recently she won many awards. If she lost her head, she hoped everyone would remind her.
Jiang Wen with LET THE BULLETS FLY won the Most Outstanding Director and The Most Recommended Film. He said that winning an award in Hong Kong was a little strange, he would never imagine that he would win two.
Stephen Fung Tak Lun revealed that he is working on the film TAI CHI trilogy. The first two installments have already been completed. Speaking of Keanu Reeves' MAN OF TAI CHI, he felt that with one being modern and the other costume they had no conflict. He hoped for a summer release. He also revealed that his company with Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho) is planning a racing film with Derek Yee Tung Sing as its director. "Ng Yin Cho and I both will perform. (Will you fight over the lead?) Let him have it, I will help with the camera!"
