Perhaps Love Directed by Peter Ho-Sun Chan, starring Jacky Cheung, Zhou Xun, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Ji Jin-Hee. This Hong Kong film boasts a pan-Asian übercast and was selected by Hong Kong as the contender for Best Foreign Film at the 78th Academy Awards. Taking place on the set of a musical, cast members become ensnared within a love triangle that threatens to catastrophically derail the project that brought them together in the first place. Choreographed by Bollywood legend Farah Kahn, Perhaps Love will draw the audience into both the film and the film within the film. After the screening, join the Opening Night celebration at the Regency Center. Guests will include Peter Ho-Sun Chan, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and visiting Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe. Opening Night is sponsored by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office and the Hong Kong Tourism Board.
