Inshe moved to Macauthen Hong Kong at the age of five and attended St. Hui then received a Masters in English and comparative literature at the University of Hong Kong until and later, studied at the London Film School for two years. Before receiving her degree, Hui studied and did her thesis on the works of Alain Robbe-Grilleta French writer and filmmaker.
Her breakthrough directorial work began with several drama series and short documentaries on 16mm for the Television Broadcasts Limited TVB television station. Two of these films were so controversial that they had to be banned from airing. The most popular films for that time were Eastern variations of Hollywood oriented gangster and action films.
But Hui did not follow the trend and preferred to create more personal films. Many of her best films involved themes pertaining to cultural displacement.
In particular, her central characters are often individuals who are forced to relocate to another country and shown to be struggling and learning to survive. Her best known works, which fall under this category, are The Story of Woo Viet and Boat People — the remaining two parts of her "Vietnam trilogy.
One of her most personal work is Song of the Exilea semi-autobiographical film.
The film depicts the story of a young woman, Cheung Hueyin returning to Hong Kong for her sisters wedding after studying film in London for a couple of years. Hueyin and her mother, who is Japanese, do not seem to have a steady relationship. Her directing career has slowed down a bit, as she focused more on behind-the-scenes work for other filmmakers.
However, the theme of displacement is still recurrent in most of her works.
During the mids, Hui tried to start up a film project about the Tiananmen Square massacre and the reactions of Hong Kong citizens.
But the project was never made due to the lack of investments and funding. The term Tiananmen Square massacre is no longer in use by the Chinese government, as it portrays a harsher image of the incident. Throughout her career, Hui has often taken chances to develop more intense and ambitious films, while making a name for herself.
She was aware of the difficulties in finding such projects that would both "attract investors as well as appeal to the public. Although Hui is best known for making controversial films, the interview, in particular, was describing the horrors of increased crime and unemployment rates in Tin Shui WaiHong Kong.
It was immediately hailed as an important film in the Hong Kong New Wave. Hui experimented with special effects and daring angles; her preoccupation with sensitive political and social issues is a recurrent feature in most of her subsequent films.
Boat Peoplethe third part of her Vietnamese trilogy, is the most famous of her early films. It examines the plight of the Vietnamese after the Vietnam War.
The film looks into the loss of identity, disorientation and despair faced by an exiled mother and a daughter faced with clashes in culture and historicity.
Post-hiatus work[ edit ] After a brief hiatus in which she returned briefly to television production, Hui returned with Summer Snowabout a middle-aged woman trying to cope with everyday family problems and an Alzheimer -inflicted father-in-law.
Inshe was a member of the jury at the 46th Berlin International Film Festival. Inher July Rhapsodythe companion film to Summer Snow and about a middle-aged male teacher facing a mid-life crisiswas released to good reviews in Hong Kong and elsewhere. In an interview with Muse Magazine, Hui explains how she sees the two films as about something uniquely Hong Kong: It is not a love story, but rather a tale about a master and his long-time servant and was based on the relationship producer Roger Lee had with his servant.Name Thesis Title Ho Chi Kwan, Alice To find a positive relationship between nonverbal sensitivity and predictive accuracy Ho Seck Yee, Elsie The relationship between differences in cognitive styles and the process of identification Hui Yee Lan, Sylvia Adolescent problems in the secondary school students of Hong Kong Short Bio: Huamin Qu is a full professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
