    I've just learned that some  short documentaries that I did a while ago, will finally be released on DVD by Pathe Distribution in their Asian Star DVD collection, on March 26th, 2008 :

    -L'Héritier de Hong Kong : Derek Tsang 曾國祥 interview on AV French DVD (13 minutes)
    -Le Rebelle de Hong Kong : Pang Ho-cheung 彭浩翔,interview about AV (13 minutes)

    -Le Hong Kong Fou de Pang Ho-cheung : 26 minutes documentary about the films of Pang Ho-cheung featuring Pang Ho-cheung 彭浩翔, Tony Leung Ka-fai 梁家輝, Marsha Yuan 原子鏸, Peter Kam 金培達 & Eric Tsang 曾志偉 (It will be available on the French DVD of Men Suddenly in Black French  大丈夫).
    -Feng Xiao-Gang 馮小剛 interview about A World Without Thieves  天下無賊 (I don't know the running time, since I didn't have the time to direct this one, only shot and conducted the interview).

    Also, I'm starting to get very upset about the unprofessional way some people are working. I was supposed to edit a Tsui Hark interview,  done two years ago, for the French DVD of The Raid  財叔之橫掃千軍, but apparently, somebody forgot to contact me (unbelievable right ?) because the DVD of The Raid will also be released on March 26th, but without any extra features. I have to find out what happened...

    Just received an answer from Pathe by e-mail : "We will not include the interview on the DVD." And that's it. I have to deal with it. They'll not include my Carrie Ng 吳家麗 interview on the "Skinny Tiger Fatty Dragon 瘦虎肥龍" DVD either. No explanations. Nothing. Of course, I'm losing money but most of all, I'll be very embarassed in front of Tsui Hark and Carrie Ng who were expected their interviews to be released on DVD. Since I have the rights on the Tsui Hark interview, I think I'll just edit it (it was done in English) and put it on line, and everybody will be able to download it for free. Concerning Carrie Ng, it's a long carrer interview so I think I'll be able to use it somewhere else...

    A DVD release without any extra features? That's pretty much unacceptable these days!
