Traditionally, documentaries do not occupy an important place in the film industry in Hong Kong, but I firmly believe that such films deserve a place at the table. It is simply a matter of finding new topics and new angles. Making documentaries may require less material resources than other types of films, but it certainly demands just as much time and effort. In the end, the feedback generated by documentaries may even be greater, which is the reason I have chosen to persevere in this field.
Yeung Wing-cheung was born in Hong Kong in the 1960s. After graduating from the Department of Government and Public Administration at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, he joined TVB and ATV successively to work as a creative personnel. He formed his own company, Sparkling Sun Int’l, in 2000 to supply content to TV stations. His programs were made with the goal to probe deeply into the heart of matters and reflecting the true texture of life.
Yeung has a wealth of experience in creating and producing documentaries for television and is known for such series as Stories from Afar. In 2005, Yeung joined Media Evangelism on its expedition to locate Noah’s Ark in Turkey and documented the process in The Days of Noah (2005) and The Days of Noah 2— Apocalypse (2011), the latter of which received the Golden Angel Award for Best Documentary at Chinese American Film Festival in 2012.
