It is un- expected that I would direct a film Rigor Mortis in 2012. To me, as a singer, actor, screenplay, director or produce, the originality of all is “creation”. I love creation. It is always contradic- tory in making films. It emphasizes teamwork whereas it is also based on the personal idea of the director. It is always a new world for the audience to release their emotions in the dark cin- ema. We would be laughing, weeping, feeling grief, fear, angry, touched and released together with the story and characters. Films are the reflection of humanity and sentiments. And this is the eternal beauty of creation.”
