Award-winning film director Mabel Cheung will be present to introduce her classic film - An Autumn's Tale

The film screening will be followed by discussion and Q&A with Dr. Stacilee Ford, author of Mabel Cheung Yuen-ting's An Autumn's Tale, 2008.

This is a serious, personal picture, filmed on a shoestring in New York that happened to strike a chord with HK's big audience. A recent college graduate, played by Cherie Chung arrives in Manhattan from Hong Kong to study acting. She's a virginal country mouse, appalled by the filth and the abrasive natives, very earnest about her art. Chow Yun Fat plays her city-mouse cousin, a conniving taxi driver who drinks, brawls, and gambles, and takes the green girl under his wing. --David Chute
