The Taiwan Golden Horse Award reaches its 50th anniversary this year. Yesterday the Golden Horse 50 image commercial announced that the Golden Horse executive committee chair Hou Hsiao-Hsien personally directed the Golden Horse 50 ambassador Maggie Cheung Man Yuk through the history of film. Cheung Man Yuk has always wanted to work with Hou Hsiao-Hsien but was never able to fulfill her wish. This time for Golden Horse 50 she finally reached her goal.
Cheung Man Yuk said that she missed several chances to work with Director Hou but could not forget him. Thus she was especially excited about this collaboration. Although she has not made a film in awhile, she rapidly got into condition and completely grasped the scenes that Director Hou conceived. She in order to do her best repeated the simple walk forward over and over, took the initiative to discuss her line of vision, the sway in her walk and continuously hoped to shoot a few more shots to achieve her best.
