Biography
 
  Chen Hongmin was sent to train in Japan with Toho and Toei film companies in 1963. At the time, he was working as an editor for Central Motion Picture Corporation, the government-sponsored company that specialized in Mandarin-language cinema. But, because Central had the best equipment and Taiwanese-language cinema was more popular at the time, many Taiwanese-language cinema producers sent their films to Central for post-production. Through editing these films, Chen became drawn into the world of Taiwanese-language cinema. After he came back from Japan, he began directing, and Vengeance of the Phoenix Sisters was one of his early works. He complained about the lack of budget, explaining that without professional lighting he had been compelled to improvise on night shoots with the beams from car headlights. This ingenuity paid off, and he went on to direct over 25 more films, most of them martial arts cinema, including many made in Hong Kong after the eclipse of Taiwanese-language cinema. However, it is as an editor that he is best-known, with over 100 films to his credit.
