Bonus Trivia

.

Prior to becoming a film director, Cheung worked as the head writer at a prominent television station based in Hong Kong.

.

"I don’t know what the audience reaction will be, but I write a story that moves me, firstly, and hopefully the audience will be moved later." - from Time Out Hong Kong, September 2, 2015

.

"My movies reflect all my thoughts and experiences I’ve had during these years in Hong Kong. Things are quite turbulent right now and we have experienced unexpected changes in the city. It’s like everyone doesn’t know what will happen to them in the future. Things are unpredictable and it’s like Hongkongers are kind of rootless, just like the people in 'A Tale of Three Cities.' But, however uncertain things may be, we should be happy that we have the freedom to move around." - from Time Out Hong Kong, September 2, 2015

.

A running theme in Cheung's films, including "Illegal Immigrant" (1985), "An Autumn's Tale (1987) and "Eight Taels of Gold" (1989), was issues relating to migration in her native Hong Kong.
