David Wu is a prolific director, editor, producer, actor and writer, who first established his name as a creative force in his native Hong Kong before bringing his impressive talents to the North American film and television industry. A favorite among Chinese audiences, Wu directed and co-wrote the fantasy romance, The Bride with White Hair II, the action-comedy caper Spy Games, and From Zero to Hero, about a fighter pilot in war and peace. Since moving to North America over a decade ago, Wu has teamed with long-time collaborator John Woo in his series Once a Thief, as both editor and director. Most recently he directed and edited Merlin’s Apprentice, with Sam Neill and Miranda Richardson for Hallmark for whom he also directed Bridgit Fonda in the title role of the award-winning mini-series The Snow Queen.

A Better Tomorrow is a 1986 Hong Kong action film directed by John Woo and starring Chow Yun-fat, Ti Lung and Leslie Cheung.  Register to attend this event here.
