Wong Chun & Eric Tsang interview

The below interview is also accompanied by a bonus episode available here. I recently did a little collaboration with the Unseen Films blog (unseenfilms.blogspot.com) as site writer Steve Kopian was going to get a chance to interview actor and filmmaker Eric Tsang at the 2017 New York Asian Film Festival. Eric was there to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the festival and Steve interviewed not only Eric but also the director of Mad World Wong Chun (starring Shawn Yue and Eric Tsang). Lovehkfilm said of Mad World:

“Remarkably sensitive and restrained look at a bi-polar-suffering Hong Konger from first time feature director Wong Chun. Shawn Yue is very effective in the lead role, though Eric Tsang outshines him as his caring father. One of Hong Kong Cinema’s more surprising and worthy films in 2016. A remarkably sensitive look at mental illness in Hong Kong.”

So along with translator Frank Djeng and Jared King, Steve sat down with the director and actor to talk Mad World, dramatic acting and how this fits into Eric’s career as a whole. I was asked to contribute a few questions and Unseen Films were kind enough to let us use the audio as a compliment to this transcribed interview both available on Podcast On Fire and Unseen Films. Thank you again to Steve and Jared for letting me submit some personal questions as a fan and as a fan of people evolving their craft as either veterans or newcomers. Also a big thanks to Emma Griffith and Subway Cinema for setting up the sessions, John DiBello for the final edit of the interview and also director Wong Chun and Eric Tsang for taking the time.
