Hong Kong directors who have their films screened. It was enriching and I got to
learn about the passion of Italian people towards films. "

Roger Lee, who produced a lot of Ann Hui’s movies, and also some other
filmmakers from countries like Japan and Bhutan. Through their sharing, I am
able to know more about their culture in producing film. I'm happy that
I got this chance from Freshwave, also got the funding from NAE to support me
going to this trip. "
