This year would have been famous director King Hu (Wu Kam Chuen)'s 80th birthday. In honor of his contribution to wuxia films, Taipei Museum Of Contemporary Art and Film Archive organized KING HU: THE RENAISSANCE MAN, an exhibit that will run until August 26. Two nights ago at the opening ceremony female stars who have worked with Wu Kam Chuen before. They included veteran director Sylvia Chang (Cheung Ngai Ga), COME DRINK WITH ME's lead actress Cheng Pei Pei and TOUCH OF ZEN's lead actress Hsu Feng.
Cheung Ngai Ga and director Wu Kam Chuen worked together on the 1979 film LEGEND OF THE MOUNTAIN. At the time Director Wu did not have a son. Because Cheung Ngai Ga looked like a boy, he called her "son". Recalling when she worked with Director Wu, Cheung Ngai Ga was sentimental. He was the pride of the film industry. She learned a lot from him. She joked, "I have to come and check out Old Pa's special exhibit." As for her film work, Cheung Ngai Ga since making the film RUN PAPA RUN has not made a new film. However she has already adapted the play DESIGN FOR LIVING (WA LAI SEUNG BAN JOOK) into a film script and planned to make it before the end of the year. Johnnie To Kei Fung will direct because she will star.
