“Rocky Balboa films inspired me to make movies. It started with the first Rocky (1976) film, directed by John G. Avildsen. It’s about a boxer played by Sylvester Stalone who gets the opportunity to participate in the world heavyweight championship. . .
“I extremely like the Taiwanese film Mahjong (1996) by Edward Yang, which has nothing to do with the tile-based game at all. It’s actually about a missing businessman who owes money to an underworld gang and his son who is the leader of a youth gang. . .
“A film that stands out for me is A Better Tomorrow (1986) which has been directed by John Woo. The story itself is about an ex-gangster who tries to reconcile with his brother, but he has difficulties breaking ties with his former gang. . .

“I believe that the LGBTQI+ community is for and by the community and the concept of empowerment for transgender people is definitely on. . .
“I have a funny story to tell about how The Prestige (2006) changed my life. Years back I used to be a sports guy. I always played football, basketball and I participated with MMA I excelled in all of that. . .
