Anita_Haldanes

The biographical film “Anita” officially opened on the big screen on November 12, 2021. It depicts the life of the Cantopop diva Anita Mui from childhood until her last moments on stage, before she died of cervical cancer in December 2003.

Dubbed as the “daughter of Hong Kong”, “Madonna of Asia” and “the queen of Canto pop”, Anita Mui was the definition of a cultural icon during the golden era in 1980s and 90s. With an early career that began at the age of 4 at Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park (a.k.a. Lai Yuen), she dedicated her entire life to music and films. She was a superstar, philanthropist and one of the most iconic female singers of all time in Hong Kong.

At its premiere, “Anita” quickly became the film with the highest box office sales or admissions in Hong Kong. By November 25, it passed the HK$37 million mark.

As legal advisor to the producer, the matter was led by partner Michael Leow, and supported by associate Karen Choi and Christina Ma.
