I believe that films are always manipulations of just a few basic human emotions. By putting different
contexts or different situations you bring the audience to experience the same emotions in a
I think I am not a very social person. I do not like to talk in public. I do not like to do a lot of social
gatherings. When there are too many people, I become very silent. I only talk with very close friends.
But then I do have a lot of things that I want other people to know. So, I use the medium film to say
what I want to say, so I do not have to face them (laughs). But at the same time, they will know what
I want to say.
What I want to say? That is a lot of things. I remember when I grew up, homosexuality was a very big
issue for me. So, I want to tell people how normal we are as homosexual people. I know I actually
had a big impact when I was in Switzerland. I actually know that it’s a country where homosexuality
is not a problem. But living in Hong Kong, or especially when I see the situation in China and other
countries, it is important for me to tell people that we are no difference from the mainstream or the
heterosexual people when we are in love with someone else.
Love is not about the gender. Love is just about love. Love is an emotion.
So, when I began creating movies, that was a very important message for me that I want to say. And
then slowly, when I grew up, I became aware of other social issues. For example now the situation in
Hong Kong, I think it is very important to let everyone know what is happening.
