The Sunny Side of the Street
白日青春Directed by Lau Kok-rui
Cast: Anthony Wong, Sahal Zaman
Best Actor, Best New Director, Best Original Screenplay, 2022 Golden Horse Awards
Fates collide in the streets of Hong Kong, where a tragic accident leads a local taxi driver (played by the great Anthony Wong) to take on the role of surrogate father to Hassan, a 10-year-old Pakistani boy from a refugee family. The boy though is not so easily swayed. Wary of a society not made for immigrants, Hassan fends for himself. A new Malaysian director, a Hong Kong legend, and a young Pakistani up-and-comer make THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET a quintessential story of Asia today.
Co-Presented by The Hong Konger Club.
