TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2018 /CNW/ - Josie & The Uni Boys did a brief stop while on tour surprising fans with a performance at the FilmAid Asia Power of Film Gala. The performance held at The Murray Hotel Rooftop in Hong Kong ended with an important announcement: Josie & The Uni Boys will be starting their next project producing a documentary that will help thousands of people. The documentary aims to explore the pathway to finding happiness, through learning from two diverse cultures on finding bliss.
An inspiring group of Hong Kong's urban legends will travel half way across the world to the land of fire and ice, also known as Iceland. Iceland is famous for the largest snow glaciers to be found in Europe as well as some of the world's most robust and active volcanoes. The goal is to tell an organic story about the most important thing in life – happiness. Members of Josie & the Uni Boys band (Hong Kong rock legends), Jim Chim (Hong Kong master comedian), MC Yan (Hong Kong hip hop legend), Jan Law from Qiu Hong (a heavy metal vocalist hardcore legend), Jason Kui (up-and-coming Hong Kong solo guitarist), Jimmy Mak (Hong Kong bassist and member of the LMF group) and Ah Sik (Hong Kong, famous drummer) will star in this documentary and live mini music jam session. Chim will explore and teach jammers about how their feelings can change into happiness through fun and drama.
The documentary will be co-sponsored by the AMTD Group and the AMTD Foundation and then donated to FilmAid Asia as content to support their work with refugees. "I hope through the power of film we can spread happiness through different worlds, perspectives and cultures. Why not, that's why we're all doing it. After all, Jim Chim has never done this before and he's letting us share all of this content online, just for the good of everyone" says band founder & spirit leader, Josie Ho.
FilmAid was founded by independent filmmakers in 1999. For two decades, FilmAid has inspired millions of refugees through the power of film. As part of the global movement, FilmAid Asia focuses on refugees and under privileged communities around the Asia region, working with refugee camps and partnering with local organizations to spread life-saving messages of hope for a brighter future. Josie Ho has been involved with FilmAid Asia since its inception and is one of the biggest supporters, tirelessly working with the charity to raise funds and awareness.
