The Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin and Wong Cho Nam starred Emperor Motion Picture JUST 1 DAY (CUP NGOR 1 TIN) will open this year. Before its official release the film already has had several rounds of good news. It was selected by the 2021 Dublin International Film Festival, the Hainan International Film Festival, and the 23rd Udine Far East Film Festival.
JUST 1 DAY is full of authentic local colors and collective memories. The team goes all over Hong Kong, Kowloon and the New Territories for location shoots, bringing back deep memories for Ah Sa and Cho Nam. Ah Sa says, "We really went all over Hong Kong, like the Star Ferry Pier, City Hall. I believe everyone left their foot prints there many times. Coincidentally, we even went to where Cho Nam and I grew up. When I was little I lived on the Old Main Street in Aberdeen, while Cho Nam lived in Sham Shui Po. This time both have been captured on camera." Ah Sa jokes that she is a "friend of the Southern District", the film brings her back to her childhood locations. "From elementary school to secondary school I lived in Aberdeen. Each time I took the van home, all the other classmates had to be dropped off first. The trip included Wong Chuk Hang, Wah Fu Estate, Wah Kwai Estate, Chi Fu Fa Yuen, Lei Tung Estate, West Estate (Ap Lei Chau Estate), then to Old Main Street where I finally could get off." Cho Nam adds, "So the entire film would give the audience a type of 'home' feeling!"
