Liu Wai Hung's TH GOOD, THE BAD AND TH UGLY (MONG JUNG YUN) new immigrant character Ah Chan was so memorable that he has been "Ah Chan" for several decades. Ah Chan yesterday appeared with his wife and son Liu Chun Yin. Working on organic agriculture in the Mainland, Ah Chan announced his return to Hong Kong with numerous plans. He and his friend Lai Man Cheuk will work together on a film FAI WOOT JUEN KEI. Ah Chan Said, "The film will be about a group of Mainlanders' struggle in Hong Kong in the 70s. This time I won't play Ah Chan and instead will be called Brother Fai Woot. I hope the production will start soon, in time for a release for next year's Hong Kong Film Award." He said that he did not have money to invest but found a friend to invest 12 million on the production. Ah Chan said that he returned to Hong Kong not to make money but to establish a foundation to repay the society. "I hope to publish a book that talks about organic life, the proceed from which will be used for Chan Soh's bird's nest business. Its profit will establish the Sunflower Foundation, which will help young people with finding a way out." Lai Man Cheuk will produce and write Ah Chan's new film. Speaking of new immigrants in the film, he said that he was not afraid of deepening the China and Hong Kong conflict. Instead he wanted to ease it with the film. "The post 90 new generation doesn't understand Hong Kong's past, now many Hong Kongers were new immigrants in the 60s and the 70s. I want to tell the new generation about their contribution to Hong Kong, this part of history cannot be overlooked."
