“I am thankful to receive this award while the movie is still in theatres. Thank you, Chinese American Film Festival, thank you to all the voters,” she enthused.

Sandra also thanked director Wan Chi Man, stating that the said filmmaker persisted in making the movie about the relationship between So and his mother.

“Regrettably, the film wasn’t released in U.S. cinemas. I also didn’t get the chance to fly over to thank you. But not to worry, the film is already on Netflix. North American viewers would be able to see it,” she added.

It is noted that the movie has been chosen to represent Hong Kong in the Best International Feature Film category at the 94th Academy Awards.
