Two Sisters is a new play, written and directed by the trans woman Ouyang An, which will have its first night in Hong Kong’s venerable City Hall soon. In the last seven days of rehearsals many hidden tensions rise to the surface, sparked by the longstanding rivalry between the two lead actresses Yuan Xiuling (a stage veteran making her comeback a year after the death of her faithless husband) and He Yuwen (a smart movie actress making her stage debut).



Director 导演

Born in 1957, Stanley KWAN graduated from the Hong Kong Baptist College with a degree in mass communications. He once landed a job at Hong Kong’s Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) before working as production assistant for Ann HUI (A Simple Life) and other Hong Kong directors. His debut feature, Women (1985), starring Chow Yun-fat, was a major box office success. As a key figure in the Hong Kong Second Wave, Kwan constantly explores the power of female protagonists and their romantic struggles with sympathetic eyes, and such directorial credits include Rouge (1987), Full Moon in New York (1989), Center Stage (1992), Red Rose White Rose (1994) and Everlasting Regret (2005). His documentary, Yang ± Yin: Gender in Chinese Cinema (1996), will also be screened at our festival on August 17.

关锦鹏出生于1957年,毕业于香港浸会学院,获得大众传播学学位。 他曾在香港电视广播公司(TVB)工作,随后担任起许鞍华(《桃姐》)等香港导演的制片助理。 他的首部长片,周润发主演的《女人心》(1985),取得了不俗的票房。 作为香港电影新浪潮第二波的代表,关锦鹏以充满同情的眼光,不断探索女主人公的力量以及她们的情感挣扎。他的作品包括《胭脂扣》(1987)、《人在纽约》(1989)、《阮玲玉》(1992)、《红玫瑰白玫瑰》(1994)和《长恨歌》(2005)。他的纪录片《男生女相:华语电影之性别》亦于8月17日在本届木兰电影节举行放映。
