THE SOONG SISTERS, originally released in 1997, is considered one of the highlights of director and CAAMFest 2016 Spotlight filmmaker Mabel Cheung’s ongoing career. Set in China in the early 20th century, Cheung’s award-winning film tells the true story of the three fascinating Soong sisters, whose high-profile marriages, celebrity status and family ties elevated them to positions of wealth and power.

Maggie Cheung (HERO), Michelle Yeoh (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON) and Vivian Wu (THE LAST EMPEROR) star in the captivating lead roles. All three siblings, along with their husbands, the wealthy H. H. Kung, the powerful Sun Yat-sen and the revolutionary Chiang Kai-shek, used their influence to shape Chinese history for decades to come.
