Beijing International Film Festival Cancels Screenings of Hong Kong Film “May I Live”

In a surprising turn of events, two scheduled screenings of the Hong Kong film “May I Live” at the Beijing International Film Festival were abruptly canceled, sparking speculation and controversy among viewers and netizens.

Director Sasha Chuk took to social media to express her disappointment at the sudden cancellation of the screenings, citing difficulties in obtaining tickets for the highly anticipated film. Despite the refund notices stating that the reason for the cancellation was due to the copy being damaged beyond repair, many questioned if there were ulterior motives behind the decision.

The film, which tells the story of two immigrants from Hunan and their struggles in Hong Kong, has garnered critical acclaim and nominations at prestigious awards ceremonies. However, some netizens speculated that the cancellation may be linked to the film’s controversial themes, including drug abuse and land struggles.

Despite the setbacks, “May I Live” has received recognition for its performances, with lead actors winning awards for their roles. The film was poised to be showcased at the Beijing International Film Festival as part of the “Focus on the Future” section before the screenings were canceled.

As the controversy surrounding the cancellation continues to unfold, many are eagerly awaiting further updates on the fate of “May I Live” and the reasons behind the sudden decision to pull the film from the festival lineup.
