At the age of 71, how does Josephine Siao struggle with her ceaseless learning?
From the age of six, Siao was moving people to tears and laughter with films. She was one of the Seven Princesses formed in 1960s along with actresses Connie Chan and Nancy Sit, etc. Despite the fame, she walked away from her promising career to pursue studies in the US. After her graduation, Siao created the very popular comic character Lam Ah-chun. She achieved international recognition with the film Summer Snow (1995) which won her best actress awards. Siao founded the End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation with the aim of raising public awareness of the issue.
This is the first live interview with audience since Siao has hearing loss in both ears. Let’s convert our voice to text and body language. We will look into Siao’s legendary past, explore her significance to Hong Kong, and discuss how to live an amazingly wonderful life.
This is the sixth episode of Hall of Wisdom in the First Semester, 2018 – 2019.
