Yim Ho

Hong Kong film director.

Yim Ho is a Hong Kong director most active in the 1980s, and a leader of the Hong Kong New Wave. He began his career making television programs for RTHK, then became a film director in 1980.

One of his most critically acclaimed works was Homecoming (1984). This film was different from other films of that period in that it presents certain emotions and sympathies towards the relationship between Mainland China and Hong Kong (the Sino-British Joint Declaration was signed the same year Homecoming was released). The film brings together two very well-known actresses, Josephine Koo and Siqin Gaowa. Anita Mui's theme song with the same title as the film has also been a popular cantopop song.

Ho's son Linq Yim is an actor, musician, and director who acted in Ho's 2005 film A West Lake Moment, and composed its original soundtrack.
