As reported on Oriental Daily, the movie, which will chronicle the life of legendary singer Anita Mui, will be holding its global premiere at the festival on 15 October.

Speaking about the film selection, director Longman Leung expressed, “I am very honoured that “Anita” was selected to be this year’s Busan Film Festival closing film. This film wasn’t just a chronicle of an era, but we also tried our best to revive the memory of this Daughter of Hong Kong of ours.”

On the other hand, lead actress Wang Danni (Louise Wong) is also elated over the news, expressing hope that more people would be able to learn and understand more about Anita’s life through this film.

“I hope that people will start listening to her songs and watch her movies again after watching this film,” she added.
