This feature-length documentary on early Chinese film pioneer Lai Man-wai (Li Minhui) premiered at the 2001 Hong Kong International Film Festival, and has now been released on DVD. Directed by Choi Kai-kwong, it is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the origins of Hong Kong and Chinese cinema. Lai Man-wai, born in Japan in 1893 and educated in Hong Kong, became arguably the central figure in the birth in Chinese cinema.
