Synopsis Can two people form a family solely for the sake of love? Guy and Henry, a couple deeply in love, had willingly travelled all the way from Hong Kong to Vancouver, Canada in order to get married, when such marriage is not even recognized legally in their hometown. Why did they make such a big effort to do this? What is the true meaning of marriage? Under the mentality of Chinese families in a post-colonial society like Hong Kong and through their marriage, how did the couple realise their family members' hope regarding their union? As the couple got married in a relatively open society like Canada, how are the newlyweds influenced by the western society's mentality and its marriage regulations?
Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

"Documentary short films on same-sex marriage are rather uncommon in local productions and rarely have an opportunity to participate in public screening or festivals. Receiving the nomination to join NAE was therefore a tremendous encouragement and support to our production. While meeting foreign film makers at the festival aided us in envisioning future growth and development in our own work, the cultural exchange itself demonstrated and promoted the high accessibility of film as a media/art form. Having been graced with the appreciation and recognition from Hong Kong Arts Centre and Visible Record, I sincerely look forward to contributing to the local film scene in the future."

— Shared by Henry Lam and Yung Chi-man, producer and director of Different Path Same Way, after attending the South Taiwan Film Festival 2012 in Taiwan, under the sponsorship of NAE.
