Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mabel Cheung (born 17 November 1950) is one of the leading film directors in Hong Kong. She was elected "Freshman's Queen" when she was studying undergrad at the University of Hong Kong, and was an avid sportswoman representing Lady Ho Tung Hall and HKU. She is known for working with the migration issues of Hongkongers and overseas Chinese, especially before the 1997 handover of Hong Kong. Her films include the "migration trilogy" Illegal Immigrant (1985), An Autumn's Tale (1987) and Eight Taels of Gold (1989). The Soong Sisters (1997) marks another peak of her filming career. All four films were made in collaboration with writer Alex Law.
