Acclaimed New Wave director Ann Hui held a preview screening of her film, The Way We Are, at the University of Hong Kong shortly after its premiere at the Hong Kong International Film Festival in April 2008. This low-budget feature deals with the quotidian lives of the residents of Tin Shui Wai, a satellite town in Hong Kong's New Territories near the border with the People's Republic of China. Ann Hui, however, takes an interest in the trials faced by the ordinary members of the community. This new film prompts a look back at Ann Hui's career, her interest in social issues, and her choice to work within Hong Kong commercial genres while attempting to remain true to a more personal approach to subjects often shunned by the mainstream film industry.
